Genotype 3A - Not submitting to Medi-Cal
« on: January 14, 2015, 05:01:36 pm »
Just found out my genotype.  3A.  The clinic said they are not submitting to Medi-Cal due to the fact that it will just be denied.  I just emailed the doctor asking if we can submit a request even if it will be denied.  What else can I do?

Hi there,

I don't know how they can just say they won't submit for you to get treatment. What is there game plan to help you?

Here's a great article you can review for some steps you can take:
