5 Foot Procedures That Are Not Covered By Insurance

Updated: 5 days ago

Health insurance unfortunately does not cover every drug, medical device, or treatment recommended by doctors. A common reason for denial by insurance companies is that the treatment is “experimental” or “Investigational”. This means that research remains ongoing. Experimental or Investigational treatments are not covered by insurance, even when data may show that the treatment may be the best or only solution to a medical problem. Insurance companies may also say that a treatment is experimental or investigational even when it has been accepted by mainstream medical society or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
