Insurance payment for V beam is tricky
Will Insurance Pay for V-Beam for Burns from Radiation Treatment?
You would have to contact your insurance carrier. Include pictures and medical letters from your Radiation oncologist and from your dermatologist. Accurately describe your condition and then it is up to your insurance carrier to make this decision. If you have excellent documentation & keep records of all the names of the insurance reps, you stand a better chance. Some carriers will approve & others will not. Be persistent and include medical journal articles which document that Vbeam is helpful in similar cases will be very helpful. Providing the carrier with all of your organized knowledge & research will lead to a better outcome. Good luck.
