I have had a 40 year battle with migraines and chronic daily headaches. I was hoping to get the Omega Procedure through Migraine Treatment Center of America, based out of Dallas, Texas. I have tried every treatment out there that I know of, which is one of the requirements of this procedure. However, I was denied coverage from my insurance company because the procedure was considered an “experimental”. First, if something is approved by the FDA, how can a procedure, especially a treatment of neurostimulation, which the lower spinal stimulators have been around for years, be considered experimental?
Does anyone know how insurance companies work and how they determine what is covered? Has anyone been able to overturn a decision made by their insurance companies and was able to get treatment? If so, how did you win the battle?
I really hope someone has had success with this frustration and can give suggestions or insights on this topic. I finally felt like I had a new hope that has now been snatched away and I am bummed!
Thank you so much!
