Generally, pain management is covered by most insurance plans as long as the treatment is fda approved and the provider is a participant to your health plan.
Check with your individual health plan.

In brief: Probably
The only way to know for certain is to check with your insurance company.
They may require a referral from your primary care physician, or that you only see specific pain specialists.
