The insurance company is playing God. They will only authorize the lumbar MRI. Told them they can use the cat scan for the cervical (neck). The pain dr uses the MRI for needle placement for the steroid shots.
I hate that insurance companies can play God rather than the dr who is treating you.
I will get the lumbar (lower back) MRI done on Saturday.
