Anyone know if Avera Health Plans pay for ESWTPosted by Toni on 8/09/03 at 18:42 (126659)
I will be going to see the doctor next Thursday for hopefully a definitive diagnosis. I have severe heel pain that has developed ever since I injured my knee (which also has to be looked at) I tried calling the Avera Health Plan office to check into coverage but she couldn't tell me and said if I could get the procedure code maybe she could tell me then. Sheesh shouldn't they know that? I have read alot of the posts and am rather scared to try anything for fear it won't work and will cost bundles.

0020T is the code. Ask them do you cover Shockwave for heel pain. ESWT that don't have a clue sometimes. I never heard of your health plan. Where are you located?

Maybe this is a small insurance company that will weight the medical facts and approved ESWT for you
