Is there a way to go through an appeal with your insurance company?

I guess the question I would ask myself was whether is is worth driving 125 miles or stick with your current one and pay out of pocket. Since we have high deductible insurance all our doctors and labs are paid out of pocket. I wonder if you could switch insurance policies to add an HSA high detuctible , then you can put money away tax free to pay for the doctor you like.

I just saw my bill for my first visit with an endo. $1148!! Not sure I got that much benefit out of the visit. He did do some lab tests, and I did find out I'm definitely type 2. I had gone several years w/o insurance until December of 2010. Was dx'd w/d in Jan 2011. Was happy I had insurance!
