A: You need to make sure the doctor has specified why it is needed; that they have stated what their reasons are. Contact the state insurance commission and the Attorney General's office of consumer affairs.Also contact a member of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Assn who handles "insurance bad faith" calims--they give free contacts.
