      Thanks to all for your replies and valuable information.

      I just talked to my insurance company and confirmed that the anniversary date for all pre-existing conditions expired August 25, 2010 so I should be covered for any further testing and/or treatments.  I went the appeals route when the issue first developed but to no avail.  That's in the past now and I need to concentrate on the future testing options mentioned in your replies.  I will be making an appointment with my oncologist soon. Thanks again to all.  Alan
