How The Insurance Process Works

  • FIRST

    Submit Patient

    Complete the above form and attach the patient’s prescription/paperwork.

  • SECOND

    Eligibility & Benefits

    Your patient is assigned to a personal Treatment Specialist who checks into their insurance coverage and reviews policy details and deductibles with them.

    SECOND

  • THIRD

    Prior-Authorization

    If we’re able to work with their insurance company, the next step is filing a prior-authorization request. We submit the paperwork you’ve provided Insurance companies have 14-business-days to respond.

  • FOURTH

    Approved (yay!)

    Once prior authorization is approved, we’ll send your patient an Advanced Beneficiary Notice (ABN) form. They can choose to receive the device the same day we file their claim, or wait until we recieved payment from your insurance company.

    FOURTH

  • FIFTH

    Denied (now what?)

    Don’t worry. We deal with denials all the time. The best way to overturn the decision made by an insurance company is to file an appeal letter. We have guidelines on how your patients can make the best case here.

  • SIXTH

    File Claim

    Once we receive a signed copy of the ABN form, we’ll file the insurance claim for The Fischer. Providers can take 60-90 days (on average) to officially approve the claim. Even if prior-authorization has been approved, it does not guarantee payment or coverage of The Fischer. Insurance companies may cite policy language, deductible requirements, or deem iontophoresis as experimental/investigational.

    Beat Sweat

    Finally, after all that, your patient has their iontophoresis device! Most people see a signifigant reduction in sweat within the first 2-weeks.
