My doctor's office handled all of the paperwork for me. My first submission was denied in mid December 2004. This was with only a letter from an endocrinologist who had treated me for Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome and weightloss. I was denied December 27. I called Aetna and found out more what they were looking for. My second submission I sent in my records from my Primary care dr, who had great notes, a diet history, and a letter from my PC Dr. I was approved in less than a week from my second submission. Aetna was easy to work with. The person I dealt with was friendly and helpful. Fortunately, I didn't have to battle with anyone.
