If you’re like most people, you have probably spent years trying a variety of different sinus treatments before arriving at the balloon sinuplasty procedure. Given the growing popularity and body of research on the effectiveness of this procedure, more and more insurance companies have added it to their list of approved treatments. However, even people who are not covered can take advantage of this procedure with a private payment plan.
Balloon Sinuplasty Insurance Coverage
The best way to know if your policy covers balloon sinuplasty is to call your insurance provider and ask. Either they will tell you that it is approved, or they will tell you that it is not covered and is in investigational proceedings to determine whether or not it is a viable treatment option. If it is approved, you are good to go.
If it is not approved, you can still move forward by having your doctor submit a pre-authorization to begin the procedure. If the pre-authorization is declined, you and your doctor can submit an appeal to have the decision overturned.
How Much Does Balloon Sinuplasty Cost?
In the state of Texas, balloon sinuplasty cost can range anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000. This does not include the cost of any hospital facilities, prescriptions or follow-up appointments.
If you will be paying for the procedure out of pocket, it is important that you ask your doctor about these additional costs so that you can prepare for the final bill. Fortunately, we are willing to work out a payment plan so you can get treatment today and start feeling better sooner rather than later.
