Will my health plan cover a procedure?

Sometimes a health plan will require preauthorization for a proposed treatment plan to determine whether or not it is medically necessary.

Check with your insurance plan to see whether preauthorization is required. If so, your healthcare provider will make the request in writing and submit all of the information to your insurance company. If you go to an out-of-network provider, then you will have to submit the forms yourself.

If coverage for the procedure is denied for some reason, you will have the right to appeal.
