A 57-year-old female asked:

insurance will not pay for supartz (hyaluronic acid) injections they will cover orthovisc or euflexxa which is more effective and less side effects?

Same: 'Synvisc' injections are in my experience helpful for early/ mild osteoarthritis . Whether you're insurance covers one or another type of viscosupplementation(Hyalournan) makes little difference as they are all very similar.Best of luck!
