This is a common question we hear in our clinic and see on Facebook. The thing is, it can be hard to know if insurance will cover certain Advanced Joint Pain Relief procedures. But, sitting and talking with one of our doctors will help you determine if Advanced Joint Pain Relief is a necessary treatment option for your condition, which will help give us an idea of whether the procedure will be covered by insurance.
A few different reasons why insurance companies do not pay for Advanced Joint Pain Relief treatment is a result of the Medicare guideline, section 2251.3: This states if a treatment is designed to help prevent disease, promote health, and extend and improve the quality of life; or a therapy is being used to either maintain or prevent deterioration of a chronic condition, it is essentially believed to be not medically necessary.” And when it comes to Advanced Joint Pain Relief, the goal is to help prevent further deterioration, which fits in this statement.
Even if you don’t have Medicare, most insurance companies have the same viewpoint as Medicare guidelines, which again says, because it’s a “regenerative process” and is supposed to prevent additional deterioration that Medicare will not cover the cost.
Another reason insurance companies don’t cover the cost of Advanced Joint Pain Relief therapy is because it is also looked at as a “natural” treatment since it is not a medication and doesn’t require surgery.
AT Advanced Joint Pain Relief and Pain Management Center of Irvine, we are dedicated to helping our patients when it comes to covering the cost of this life changing therapy.
We believe that we can no longer be dependent on insurance companies to determine what type of care and treatments we are able to receive. The reality is, it is up to you on choosing how you want to treat your body and chronic pain, not an insurance company. Traditional medicine is needed, but it’s time we move beyond it and use just medication and surgery to heal ourselves. The use of Advanced Joint Pain Relief can be exactly what you are looking for to help you achieve your functional goals.
