I have had lung infection and mild asthma. Two weeks before my 6 month pre-existing was over I went into the hospital with acute respiratory distress. After testing, xrays, and all they are saying I have copd-emphysema. They are calling shortness of breath, asthma, lung infection, etc. copd and are now sating since I had a lung infection 11 1/2 months ago-they will not cover the hospital. Is there anything I can do?

Work with your doctor to file an appeal to the plan.
