Stop smoking shot clinics available today don’t accept payment for the program through health insurance. At least until now. But they do provide a detailed receipt with appropriate coding that you may submit to your insurance company to make a claim for replacement. You are responsible for the payment of this quit smoking program to the clinic directly. You can pay by cash, creditcard or other forms of payment.
Here is the excerpt from welplex clinic’s website :
“Some insurance companies may pay all of the charges, some may pay only a portion and others may pay nothing at all. We Do Not Accept Assignment of Insurance nor make any claims as to what your insurer may pay. Patients will be responsible for payment at the time the services are rendered. We will provide you with the appropriate documentation to submit to your insurer. This procedure is not covered by Medicare.”
And here is the excerpt from medical stop smoking center clinic’s site:
“We do not accept health insurance at our clinic. We do however provide you with your billing information and give you a detailed receipt with appropriate coding that you may submit to your insurance company. Your insurance company may reimburse you for some of the charges, all of the charges or none of the charges. We do not guarantee or imply, stated or otherwise, that your insurance company will pay for any portion of the treatment. Medicare does not reimburse for any portion of our treatment.”
You just need to contact your health insurance company and discuss with them if they support for the replacement of the payment of stop smoking injection program. Ask them if they can replace for the whole cost or only a percentage of quit smoking shot treatment.
So it’s depend on your insurance company’s policy if they can replace your money that you’ve spent for this quit smoking shot treatment or not.
