I met with my radiation oncologist 4 weeks ago yesterday when the decision was made for SRT. We did the layout work as soon as tax season ended and were scheduled to start radiation a week ago today. The insurance company has yet to give the go ahead. I was told, yesterday, that the case management people hired to review the medical side of things finally said the treatment plan looks good. Naturally, in the middle of this, I got a notice that my insurance is going up 50%. Color me one happy camper. mad

Who is your health insurance carrier? I couldn't imagine a delay like this just for insurance reason. When I went for SRT consultation, my BCBS had already approved the treatment before I even decided on an RO to work with. Good luck.
