Is Bone stimulator covered by insurance?

Wondering how long it took insurance companies to covered bone stimulator treatments when it hit the market,or isn't that covered yet either?

They are covered depending upon the clinical situation, duration of poor healing fracture site, type of fracture, etc. It can be a long, pre-certification process for the patient depending upon the insurance company.
