Most public and private health insurance companies, including Medicare, cover approved uses of deep brain stimulation, including essential tremor treatment. If you're concerned about therapy coverage, talk with your doctor's office and insurance company. You can also ask your clinic for a cost estimate.
Your insurance may require that your medical clinic send a letter of medical necessity. If insurance denies coverage the first time, we can guide your clinic through the appeal process and provide supporting materials. Your doctor’s office can access this help by contacting our reimbursement hotline at 800-292-2903.
