US Patient Insurance Information

Some of our patients have had success in securing reimbursement for their HIFU procedure. Many policies differ in their details, however, so it should be noted that past success with a particular company does not guarantee future results with the same company. 

U.S. patients who only have Medicare or Medicaid should know that these two agencies do not reimburse for procedures performed outside of the United States. Patients who have any other insurance plans, including secondary plans or other government plans, could potentially be approved.

We are aware of nearly 100 patients with coverage from 46 different insurance companies (listed in the table below) who have received full or partial reimbursement for HIFU. All instances of reimbursement have occurred following the procedure. To date, there have been no pre-approvals prior to treatment.

Insurance companies that have reimbursed for at least a portion of HIFU treatment expenses:

Anthem BCBS in Indiana
Anthem BCBS in Missouri
Anthem BCBS in Nevada
