Default Hey MM, thanks for the reminder...

See the "insurance-friendly" ADR companies topic that I just stickied in this forum. It's old and crusty, but it is a start.

As far as I know, the companies are:

Kaiser, Cigna, Aetna, and medicare for under age 60.
There are various work comp companies, too.
United Health Care, Bc/BS are two that are notorious for not approving but they have approved some, but don't count on it.
PacificCare has approved at least one that I know of.
After initial denial.

Look on Charite site, which was listing all the companies that have approved ADR.
One way is to go google the company you want to check on and look up their TEC assessment to see if they approve of or disapprove ADR.
