Ask Discovery or...: The person in charge of insurance benefits at the insurance company or at the employer can answer questions about which procedures are covered or paid for. You have posted on HealthTap's free, public, informational forum for health questions. People post questions from all over the world. We volunteer doctors on HealthTap do not know the details of people's insurance plans or healthcare coverage.

Wrong place to ask: This is a public information site based primarily in the US where volunteer physicians answer a range of medical questions. We are seen worldwide. We have no access to or knowledge of your local health insurance systems or clinics. When you have such questions you need to contact your insurance plan. You are welcome to ask health questions here as needed.
