For Regenerative Injection Therapies (prolotherapy and Platelet Therapy/PRP)
What was thought to be entirely self-pay services (i.e. no insurance coverage), may in fact be partially covered by your insurance plan. This is a not too commonly used method by some RIT providers - particularly those of us who have a mostly insurance-billing practice.
The gist of it is that if you have an insurance plan that covers ND care, then you know at least your office visit will be covered. That then leaves the injection services themselves and then the PRP processing (if you are doing that; this is not an extra cost for prolo-only appointments).
So how do you know if the injection therapies (done for prolotherapy and Platelet Therapy/PRP) are covered? Well, it's nothing that you nor I can guess. Those answers can only be obtained by talking with your insurance company, and asking very specific questions.
Below is a helpful document, a step-by-step guide, so that when you call the Member Services number on the back of your insurance card, you can get all of your questions answered exactly to the detail that we need.
For all patients who are wanting to see whether some of the injection therapies can be covered by insurance, this is a necessary step before any injections are done- because I do not want to bill something to your insurance plan that gets denied.
Why? Because neither of us like surprise bills, especially when they may be for hundreds of dollars. It's much better to spend 5 minutes on the phone to find this info out ahead of time.
Any further questions? (Because I know, this insurance stuff is confusing) Let me know during your initial consult or any new/return office visit and we can talk more at that time.
