Insurance question

Posted by vince on 3/24/05 at 05:59 (171867)

When I was in the podies office the other day I was talking to a patient that had ESWT and told me their insurance did not pay for the procedure but paid the company that supplied the equiment and the tech. They denied it because they said it was ineffctive and experimental. Can one of the docs explain this crazy situation? Have any of the docs had this happen with any other procedure where the hospital got paid but the doc didn't?

Vince,
I can help this patient and or doctor if they would like to contact Dr. Z
There is alot of specific information I would need to know to determine what needs to be done. I have seen this and helped the patient gets paid.
