Achilles and ESWT insurance converagePosted by eb on 7/12/05 at 14:33 (178252)
Hi, I understand that ESWT is not yet covered by my insurance, Blue Cross, as the treatment is not FDA approved?
1) Does anyone know when it will likely get approval?
2) Can anyone share your experiences as to whether your insurance covered achilles ESWT or not?

If they started the FDA approval process today four years is a good estimate
IF you have work compensation you may be able to get coverage
