Thank you.
How does insurance generally work for pain clinics? Are they covered fully? Or do you have to be debilitated before they will allow you to visit pain clinics?
Thanks

My insurance paid 100% of the bill like it always did for everything else. No co-pays. I was limited to the number of visits I could have in a set time period, say 6 months 4 visits. You can't just walk into a pain clinic you need to be refered to one by your dr. Usually you are refered when your dr(s) feel they can no longer help you and you need pain management(narcotics) to help you have a quality of life and pain free existance.

Oh ok. I don't know what narcotics mean. But I am seeing my doctor tomorrow and I will ask him if he will refer me to a pain clinic. My pdoc also suggested that I visit a pain clinic here.
