I have my first appointment with the Pod this coming Monday. I had a Pod in the previous state I lived at and I went through the orthodics, cort shots, phys therap, with only limited results. Now I'm working a job with a lot of standing and my PF is really acting up. I'm considering ESWT, but I'm doing a lot of reading about it now on this message board and online. (TOO MUCH INFORMATION, Which is good.)

My question is does anyone know if Kaiser Permanente covers ESWT? From the pdf file I found online it seems to criticize it. How should I approach the subject w/ my Pod? Thanks for any insight.

I know of one patient that did have Kaiser pay for ESWT . This was about one year ago.
