Default Need F/U but Dr. refuse to make referral~!!

My daughter was diagnostic having birth make inside her right upper eye lid, and when she went to see a specialist for treatment. But now, she already taking propranolol for one month, and she need to following with the specialist again. We r in california and using Medical insurance, we have tried two pediatricians but both of them refused to refer her to see the specialist for they both think she looks like nothing serious now!One doctor even said that u can stop taking medicine since it will fake away. We showed them how seriously she was like before taking medicine, and the pic showed that the growing hemangioma in her eyelid already block half of her eye sight, and she is only three months! The specialist told us that they cannot see my daughter if we want to use cash, the medical and government will notice and they will got into trouble! But, what should we do now? we cannot using cash nor using insurance to see specialist, I am very nervous and helpless now~~~~
