My Health Insurance Carrier is denying my claim Air

Customer Question

My Health Insurance Carrier is denying my claim for an Air Ambulance. I went to Cuba and I had an automobile accident with the car rental in Cuba. I was operated in Cuba, but they had minimal tools to fix my back. I broke L1 and L3, plus L2 was shatter. In order to get proper Medical attention an Air Ambulance was sent to Cuba to get me because I could not fly Commercial due the fact that I could not sit. Plus in my stay in the Hospital in Cuba my body got the E Coli bacteria which made a large hole where I was operated in Cuba. I thought the Air Ambulance was going to bring me to New Jersey my home state. Instead, the plane brought me to Miami, Florida, which is where I have been since July 9th. I am still given Medical care, but I am much better and I would like to go and stay in facility in New Jersey that is 5 minutes from my house. I asked the insurance for a transfer of facility to my home state and they approve my facility that I selected but they said I had to pay for my transportation, the only transportation take is a Air Ambulance because of the wound I had in my back. Doctors do not approve of me taking a Commercial jet to go back to New Jersey because,even though the wound that was cause by my e coli,the wound has not heal jet. The Doctors tell me if I fly Commercial now I would re-injure my wound and it would take another 4 to 6 months to get cured again.
Is there anything I can do to get Health Insurance to pay for my Air Ambulance?
