I am so sorry about this outcome for you. This was not unexpected, sad to say. Was your reviewer a physician? Obviously, whoever it was had a pre-scripted response. As I've indicated, as a provider, I have learned that when I get a message to call re pre-certification for a patient, it means the answer is "no." Is there another recourse, i.e., another appeal level?
