We understand the insurance process can be frustrating and time-consuming. Our team will help to ensure you receive the maximum benefits available in a timely fashion by working directly with your insurance carrier on your behalf.
All treatment requires pre-authorization from your insurance carrier to determine whether the treatment is considered medically necessary and therefore covered by the carrier. Your carrier may also refer to this process as pre-certification or pre-determination. The process can take two to four weeks and will require:
- Examination of your medical history
- History of pain treatments to date
- Psychological evaluation, if requested by your carrier
If you qualify as a candidate, we will need your help to complete your pre-authorization. Our goal is to help you get relief from chronic, severe head pain as soon as possible. We will make every effort to provide insurance support that is quick and convenient.
