My primary care physician has recommended that I see a dermatologist, however there are no doctors in “my area” (the city of Erie, PA) that accept my UPMC insurance. I have called the company twice to find a participating doctor, and I’ve been told that there are none.
My doctor has applied for me to get an exception (as instructed by UPMC) but the insurance company has refused to allow me to see an “out of network doctor” because it is not an emergency.
I pay $500+ a month for this insurance and there are no participating doctors in the area??
