Pain management evaluation and treatments, including treatment procedures, are covered by all health plans with few exceptions such as IDD which is still considered investigational by some insurances.
We pride ourselves in our ability to provide fast, safe, and effective care at good value to our patients and their health plans.We are mindful that many individuals are either un-insured or under-insured due to the difficult economy and changing work place insurance coverage. In some cases, we have seen patient co-pays and deductibles skyrocket to the point that in many cases we can offer better prices for our service outside of their network coverage. Please contact us to have our clinic review what would be the best option for you.
We are providers for all major insurances including Medicare, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, Healthnet and United Healthcare. We are also the providers for IPAs including Monarch Healthcare, St. Joseph Heritage, MHAP and Memorial Care Medical Group.
Treatment procedures will usually require pre-authorization and our office will initiate and conduct the request process. Patients will be informed, usually within 1-2 days when a treatment is authorized, but they usually may proceed to schedule for a procedure at the time of consultation if we do not anticipate a denial from the insurance company. Because of our evidence-based practice style, utilizing treatments based on efficacy, our requests are usually granted without delay. We, as well as our insurance and IPA partners, understand that when a person is in pain, no one wishes to prolonged his or her agony any longer if at all possible.
