Insurance Carriers & Coverage

WE HAVE THE EXPERTISE TO GET YOU APPROVED!

Surgical treatments are often covered benefits under many insurance policies. Coverage depends on what type of policy you have and the terms within the policy. Each insurance policy can vary greatly, even when issued by the same company. Your employer dictates the coverage in your policy. At our practice, if you have the benefit and meet the requirements, we WILL get you approved.

Insurance coverage changes frequently; therefore, itís always a good idea to check with our facility for the most recent updates on coverage.

Each insurance company has its own criteria for surgical treatment and procedures, and policies change frequently. We will work with your insurance company on your behalf and submit all required information to expedite their approval process, so you'll know in advance what is covered.

What is an “Exclusion?”

Unfortunately, many policies have “Exclusions” written into them regarding certain surgical treatments. This means that even though the treatment may be “Medically Necessary”, it is not a covered benefit. Industry leaders are working diligently to make national changes regarding coverage and Medicare’s announcement of national coverage may help the push for all insurance companies to provide coverage. If your policy has an “Exclusion”, there is little that can be done. There are some options you may want to evaluate:

  • You may have to change policies, if this is an option, during open enrollment from the HMO to the PPO, although there is no guarantee that the other policy will cover your surgery.
  • You may have to change to a spouse’s policy.
  • You may have to finance or privately pay the surgery (please call our office for details).

Surgical treatments are a covered benefit under many insurance policies. Coverage depends on what type of policy you have and the terms within the policy. Each insurance policy can vary greatly, even if different policies are issued by the same insurance company.  Your employer and the insurance company determine the benefits available to you.
