Does Insurance Cover Stem Cell Therapy?
Is Stem Cell Therapy Covered by Insurance?
In America, healthcare is a complicated subject compared to other countries where healthcare is a right and is accessible for the most part of the population. Americans often find themselves getting the treatments they can get with the help of their insurance, which is not really ideal because sometimes the treatment they need isn't covered by their insurance.
Procedures like chemotherapy end up being somewhat free but at what cost? Most traditional treatments for autoimmune and degenerative diseases are really aggressive and have severe consequences on the body in their way to stopping or slowing down the deterioration of the main disease. Secondary effects can lead to the degeneration of other organs in the process risking the overall health of the patient.
It’s really common for people to think that some procedures are insured because of their success rate, which is not an accurate assumption. Let’s take chemotherapy again for an example, chemotherapy’s success rate has been controversial for the last few years, some say there’s only 2% or 3% of the people who undergo chemotherapy that has been cured. This kind of statement can be alarming but it’s important to be aware that in any kind of treatment or therapy it’s almost impossible to generalize about the results and to have some kind of complete guarantee. The result of treatments and therapies depend on the condition of the patient, the deterioration, past treatments and their secondary effects, amongst others. So when people ask about the success rate of ANY kind of therapy, the percentage often will depend on the variables of the study such as delimitations, the sample of people that participate in the study, and more. So insurance companies can’t really base solely on success rate to cover treatment.
