I applied for NYS disability on January 10th but have been out of work since December 14th. I have small cell lung cancer and can not work.
CIGNA has not even responded to my claim yet and I haven't received a single payment. I had to cancel two doctor appointments because I don't have the money to pay for them. It is now February 18th and I have an appointment with my Oncologist on March 6th. If I don't receive a payment by then I'll have to cancel that appointment also.
I am supposed to get another CT scan on the 6th to see if my tumor has shrunk yet. I also have brain radiation appointments that I can not keep. Each doctor's appointment cost me $30 (co-pay) but, without my disability, I can not go to the doctors. What is going on here?
I can't even get CIGNA to return my calls.
