I received a copy of a letter from Medicare that they sent to my radioligist. They said that they were not paying for 2 of the treatments. That they were not neccessary and uncalled for and I had too many in to short of time. I had 35 treatments. I am not liable because there was no way I would know unless they told me Medicare would not pay. I wonder how Medicare knows what you need and then on the other hand did I get to much radiation. Anyone have a letter like this?

Hi, there, I do not know about Medicare, but I did have radiation during a high summer heat and thunderstorm period and I missed a couple of radiation sessions because of power outage at clinic, They made them up on alternate days by having me come twice in one day. They indicated that a certain time period had to pass, like eight hours, before I could have the second one. I do not believe you are in much danger from extra radiation. I, too, had 35 treatments.
