I don't know: what your medical insurance covers. However, neurologists are tremor specialists. Would discuss with your primary provider. Take care.

Challenge: Shaking could be Parkinson's, essential senile tremor, cerebellar tremor from a stroke, hyperthyroidism, etc. Treatment is of course based upon cause. A neurologist could very well help, and perhaps an online Concierge visit could expedite.
