Medical Necessity Justification
The cost of medical procedures can be an obstacle for many patients. If a procedure is considered elective, cosmetic or “experimental,” it may not be covered under many health insurance plans. The term “medical necessity” is legal jargon that may be found in many health insurance policies. If a procedure can be proven to be a medical necessity, it may be covered under the insurance policy. Our pain specialists at Caliber Pain™ work with patients in New York City who need medical necessity justification evidence to have a medical procedure covered by their health insurance.
Proving medical necessity for a procedure that is usually considered elective or cosmetic can be difficult. Insurance companies are known for fighting to pay out as little as possible on their policies. It is important to have medical professionals provide the needed test results, medical history and other evidence to persuade the insurance company that a medical necessity justification is warranted.
