Is basal cell carcinoma malignant or benign?

I was recently diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma. My dermatologist performed the Mohs surgery. I submitted a claim to my cancer insurance co. They denied the claim stating that the pathology report did not indicate a malignant condition. Isn t that what basal cell carcinoma is? I look forward to hearing you opinion.
