Thanks for your quick responses! I was really surprised when I checked my email and found so many responses so quickly. You've given me alot to think about between now and tomorrow morning. I will make some phone calls about ESWT and see what I find out from BC/BS about coverage.

My take is this. Most won't cover the procedure and the ones that do are looking to remove this coverage. There is just too much cost for the insurance companies I guess you better call as soon as possible. The code to tell them is 0020T. Use the term shockwave Therapy. Your diagnosis is plantar fasciitis. Good luck.
