Also ask for the insurance companies WRITTEN criteria for acceptance or 
rejection. Of course, they will not provide this, but demand it anyway in 
writing (you demand in writing). It will not be provided because they 
know you will beat them to death with it in court. They may have general 
guidelines, but your doctor's diagnosis and medical orders take precedence.

Remember, to play the game, they must play by the same rule which you 
have to with them. Get everything in writing, let them know you plan to 
pursue the matter through appeals, the insurance commissioners office and 
court if necessary.
