Question 16 months hemangioma inside cheek

I am a new mom of a 16 month energetic lil boy. When he was first born I noticed a little ball like a bruse o his left check. Since then it has grown rapidly. He needs to be seen by a dr for his one year check up but it was cancelled. Due to the doctor needed more time to research it more. Since January 1 he has no insurance the insurance company want records of his appointment to decide if he is eligable. At this time I would want to know where do I go from now.

I'm not sure that I understand how they would want to see records for a visit that he hasn't had yet?

You need to contact Basia, who is our insurance expert. You can find her from here:

Please email me directly. I have a doctor in California that would be willing to discuss your child's case with the dermatologist.
