Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis Insurance Resources and Tips
In the event that your insurance does not cover Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis treatments, there are options for you to exercise.
One proven way to get insurance company approval for iontophoresis treatment for Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis is to ask your doctor to write a letter indicating that there is a medical necessity for your iontophoresis treatment. The medical necessity may be based on a skin condition that has developed as a result of your Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis, the mental stress associated with the condition, or another reason your doctor may indicate.
Most doctors have standard letters of appeal for denied coverage so this should not be too much of an effort, and insurance companies always have standard appeal process to follow. On occasion, insurance companies reverse previous decisions or including coverage despite a written exclusion in your policy.
If you are denied coverage for iontophoresis treatment of your Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis, there is still a case to be made for the self-pay option. To determine whether it makes economic sense to self-pay, add up all of the out-of-pocket expenses you have accrued since the start of your Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis. This should include:
- Laundry or dry cleaning bills
- New clothes to replace those ruined by your Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis
- Over-the-counter remedies
- Prescription medications
- Pads other absorbent products
- Counseling, if applicable
After calculating these expenses, which do not include the considerable time it takes to manage your Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis, you may find that the self-pay option for iontophoresis treatment is economical.
