Breast reduction - turned down by CCG
- It certainly is worth appealing.
- I suggest you contact CCG to find out why they turned you down and what you need to do to meet criteria.
- At least in the USA, and probably in the UK, it helps to hire a lawyer to file the appeal -
- Ask the specialist what in her/his experience has been most effective.
