I am disabled and I am requesting a manual wheel chair from my health insurance company. Because I have already had a power wheel chair, the health insurance company decided it is not "medically necessary" to have a manual wheel chair for me.

The denial letter from the insurance:
Your request for the manual wheelchair with accessories cannot be approved. We see your child has a power wheelchair for mobility.

Services that are Not Medically Necessary are an exclusion under your plan benefits and are not covered.
Please provide an outline of how you plan to tackle the issue. Word count 1000. Please stay with the price that you propose. I am not willing to negotiate with you on the price once you make an offer. Let's save each other's time. If you want to raise the price, after you bid, please do not bit.
I can write your appeal letter. I am Canadian. I am a native English speaker. I have a solid understanding of the US (stupid) medical system. I do all my own writing. I am not an agent.
