How The Insurance Process Works
Have your doctor’s office complete the Insurance & Physician’s Packet. Then, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or fax it to (818) 775-2941.
Your personal Treatment Specialist will check into your insurance coverage and review your policy details and deductibles with you.
If we’re able to work with your insurance company, the next step is filing a prior-authorization request. We submit the paperwork provided by your doctor’s ofifice. Insurance companies have 14-business-days to respond.
Once prior authorization is approved, we’ll send you an Advanced Beneficiary Notice (ABN) form. You can choose to receive the device the same day we file your claim, or wait until we recieved payment from your insurance company.
Don’t worry. We deal with denials all the time. The best way to overturn the decision made by your insurance company is to file an appeal letter. We have guidelines on how best to make your case here.
Once we recieve a signed copy of the ABN form, we’ll file your insurance claim for The Fischer. Providers can take 60-90 days (on average) to officially approve the claim. Even if prior-authorization has been approved, it does not guarantee payment or coverage of The Fischer. Insurance companies may cite policy language, deductible requirements, or deem iontophoresis as experimental/investigational.
Finally, after all that, you have your device! Most people see a signifigant reduction in sweat within the first 2-weeks.
