Q. Are cellular medicine treatments covered by insurance, Medicare, Worker’s Compensation, Auto Accident Insurance?
A. No, not at this time. Stem cell use is still very experimental and third party payers have very well defined non-coverage information in their policies (usually called autologous blood based therapies, which covers PRP and stem cell injections). Prolotherapy is not covered as well. Policies all cite the same reason--there is not enough research evidence to show that these treatments work in large populations.
