Most public and private health insurance companies, including Medicare, cover approved uses of deep brain stimulation, including Parkinson's treatment. If you're concerned about therapy coverage, talk with your doctor's office and insurance company. You can also ask your clinic for a cost estimate.
Your insurance may require that your medical clinic send a letter of medical necessity. If coverage is denied the first time, we guide your clinic through the appeal process and provide supporting materials.
