Is Biofeedback (Neurofeedback) Covered by Insurance?
The short answer – and we say this apologetically – is “maybe.”
In many other states, insurance companies routinely reimburse for biofeedback. Unfortunately that is not the case in Florida, where insurance companies can be resistant to reimbursement.
All is not lost, however. Some Florida insurers do reimburse for biofeedback services. Because of this, we encourage our clients to file a claim. We help you prepare the claim form, then we request that you handle any follow-up. We are always available to help you should you have questions from your insurance company that result from filing the claim.
Should your carrier deny the claim or request further information, we will assist you in disputing the denial or in providing the requested information. We may also suggest a different appropriate code to get the claim paid.
Because Center for Brain is not on insurance panels and does not accept insurance, including Medicare, we ask you to pay our fee at the time of service.
Be aware due to not being on an insurance panel, Center for Brain is an “out of network” provider. You should check to see if your insurance company covers out of network services and, if so, at what rate? You also should inquire if you will be subject to a different out-of-network deductible.
If you have questions about how Center for Brain can help you with your specific situation, don’t hesitate to call Carolyn Cohen at our office: 561-744-7616.
