Policy dependent: Most insurance companies offer different policies-and coverage varies. You'll need to call your company to see if this service is covered by your policy. Most will require that you get 'prior approval' and many will require a 2nd opinion before they will grant that approval. The severity of the problem, age of patient, and liklihood that surgery will be beneficial may be taken into account.
