I realize this is a very old post, but I get that reason a lot from MA Aetna and Aetna. They seem to be quicker to deem something experimental or not necessary. They have a pretty limited amount of covered diagnosis. I have attached the link for the most recent Aetna/MA Aetna guidelines. I could not find an LCD or NCD for Texas on Novitas.

Good luck and I hope this helps someone!
