Insurance Can Cover Your HBOT Treatment
For our patients’ benefit, Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC, is contracted with many insurance companies, who pay for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy depending on the condition that needs to be treated. There are a number of FDA approved conditions that indicate when HBOT is covered by insurance. Other situations and conditions are undergoing research, testing, and pier review.
See the list below of the insurance covered conditions:
- Non-healing Wounds
- Post Radiation Effects
- Air or gas Embolism
- Acute Traumatic Ischemia
- Acute Anemia, Exceptional Blood Loss Anemia
- Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
- Comprised Skin Flaps
- Cyanide Poisoning
- Decompression Sickness
- Gas Gangrene
- Necrotizing Infections
- Radiation Effects
- Some Cases of Osteomyelitis
- Some Non-Healing Wounds, Diabetes, Diabetic Foot
- Thermal or Extensive Burns
Some HBOT facilities are not covered by insurance. Their staff are not Nationally Certified or educated in Hyperbaric Medicine, their physicians are not credentialed by Insurance Companies or back ground checks, and they are not using equipment regulated by the FDA. Do your research as to which facility can be covered by your insurance. According to fda.gov, “The FDA regulates both the oxygen used in HBOT and the hyperbaric chambers…” We make sure to cover all the bases on our end to give the patient the most high quality, best and safest HBOT experience while following hospital standards of care.
Here are just a few of the Insurance Companies that Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC is contracted with:
- United Health Care
- Kaiser Permanente
- Anthem Blue Cross
There are some questions you can ask your insurance provider before beginning your HBOT treatment. Does your provider cover your specific condition under HBOT? What cost do they cover? How many HBOT treatments will your insurance cover or provide for you? Once your provider approves your treatment, you may either have to pay a copay or use your deductible depending on the policy that you chose. Many times the patient pays nothing out of pocket.
We have a billing team that rocks in dealing with insurance coverage, they have made the process as simple as possible to get insurance to cover Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy when warranted.
What is the process for getting started? First, IF you have a condition that is approved by your insurance, one of our very experienced physicians in Hyperbaric Medicine will do a thorough medical history, current symptom and medications review and if warranted will prescribe HBOT treatment for you.
Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC takes the appropriate steps to be approved, beginning with our health and safety regulations, the medical grade oxygen we use and the medical grade hard chambers operated by our Licensed and certified staff. If you or someone you know could benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy, please let them know that we take insurance! It is a wonderful benefit for patients when insurance can cover treatment.
