Unfortunately, most insurance companies do not cover the costs of hyperbaric oxygen therapy when treating neurological conditions. See below for a list of reimbursable conditions:
Actinomycosis – only as an adjunct to conventional therapy when the disease process is refractory to antibiotics and surgical treatment
Acute carbon monoxide intoxication
Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia – HBO therapy is a valuable adjunctive treatment to be used in combination with accepted standard therapeutic measures, when loss of function, limb or life is threatened
Chronic refractory osteomyelitis – when unresponsive to conventional medical and surgical management
Crush injuries and suturing of severed limbs – as in the previous conditions, HBO therapy would be an adjunctive treatment, when loss of function, limb or life is threatened
Necrotizing fasciitis – as an adjunct treatment, as above
Osteoradionecrosis – as an adjunct to conventional treatment
Preparation and preservation of compromised skin grafts
Soft tissue radionecrosis, as an adjunct to conventional treatment
Medicare will not pay.
However, some insurance companies may cover the consultation costs as well as pre- and post-treatment PET scans.
