Depends: Advice, get preapproval so you know for sure that you have coverage. Ins. Companies have all kinds of exclusions, so proceed cautiously.

Not sure: To be honest, i'm not sure what nhs means. I'm assuming national health service. I'm pretty sure we don't have nhs in america, so hopefully a dentist in the united kingdom can answer this question. In america, the closest thing to nhs would be medicaid. I'm not sure, but i don't think achalasia would qualify someone for medicaid in america.
