Hello Dr. Nederi, I got deviated symptom and a broken bones in my nose, and the insurance will cover the procedure for me. Do you accept insurance?
Yes I do. The process involves coming in for a consultation and examination. Then I dictate a “pre-determination letter” stating my findings and the surgical plan of action to your insurance company. Then it usually takes about 4 weeks to hear back from the insurance company as to their decision of whether or not to cover all or part of the cost of your surgery. Alternatively they may refuse to cover the cost. Occasionally they will send us a letter stating that they will pay for the cost of your surgery but then afterwards they may retract their initial decision! It is a very tedious, time consuming and frustrating process but luckily my staff is well trained to deal with these issues and they will take care of things and guide you through it.
