Rachael - That is good news indeed - all the way around!
Are you able to find out what 'code' your insurance carrier applied to the ESWT treatment?

I will check out the ins. paperwork & see if I can advise the code. If so, I will advise. Thanks for your good thoughts!

I think the doctor provides the codes and you call the insurance company to confirm that they accept it? That's what I was told anyway...
