NCD’s, LCD’s, MAC’s, Medical Policies, HMO’s, PPO’s??? What about Insurance Coverage and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

confused-silhoette-in-maze-vsmallI write this piece in the hopes that those that do read it educate themselves in matters concerning Medicare and private insurance coverage provisions for indications treatable with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Traditionally, HBO technicians, Safety Directors, Hyperbaric Managers or Supervisors were not required to know all this information but with the current economic landscape, companies in the healthcare sector are running leaner operations and requiring most positions to take on extra responsibilities. Furthermore, the fast paced life of physicians does not give providers time to educate themselves on such matters thereby leaving those within the hyperbaric department to provide such guidance on just about every case presented for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
