WILL YOUR INSURANCE COVER THE ACESSA PROCEDURE?
Many insurance companies cover the procedure. If you have a question you can call our Insurance Support Line.
Most insurance companies require that you or your doctor requests “prior authorization” before they cover the Acessa procedure.
In the request, the doctor describes the nature of the patient’s condition and why it is necessary to perform the Acessa procedure. The insurance company reviews the request and makes a determination regarding insurance coverage under the patient’s insurance plan. This determination is either an “approval” of the prior authorization or a “denial,” which means the insurance company explicitly is not committing to paying for the procedure being requested.
Good news: if you get a denial, there is typically an option to appeal it. And you don’t have to do it alone.
If you are facing an appeal with your insurance denials while struggling with fibroid symptoms, the experience can be overwhelming. We have a team of insurance specialists who are here to help. The physician offices have successfully helped dozens of patients overturn denials. Although we cannot guarantee approvals or coverage, physician offices are here to support you in the process.
If you are a patient who is concerned about your insurance covering the Acessa procedure, have experienced an insurance denial or have been denied access to the Acessa procedure through your commercial or Medicaid plan, we have resources for you.
Questions to Ask Your Doctor about Fibroids
These are my symptoms...could these be due to fibroids?
Would an MRI or ultrasound help better see if I have fibroids?
What are all possible treatment options available? What about laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation, or the Acessa procedure?
What’s the best treatment option for me?
Do you offer laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation, the Acessa procedure?
Ask your physician questions specific to your planned treatment:
- What is the success rate of this procedure?
- What are the risks of this procedure?
- What is the recovery time for this procedure?
- How many times have you performed this procedure?
- How long have you been performing this procedure?
- How long do you expect it to take for me to start feeling relief from my symptoms?
- Is there a chance of fibroids growing back or new fibroids forming?
It is important you feel very comfortable with not only the treatment option you decide on, but also the physician who will be performing it. Your physician should make you feel heard, understood, and supported. If you don’t feel 100% confident after a consultation with a physician, it's okay to seek a second opinion. This is your body, your choice.
