I have aetna insurance and RSD for some time. I take pain

Customer Question

I have aetna insurance and RSD for some time. I take pain meds like a cancer patient. My Pain Physician wants to
do a 5 day inhospitable Ketamine procedure that if FDA approve because of high remission rates and even some are cured, I suppose this is my last chance to live a normal life. Is there anyway to get Aetna to pay? I am still too young for medicare but they pay for this.
