Start by searching for an insurance company.
The insurance companies listed do not currently have coverage policies for Bronchial Thermoplasty (BT). If a person with asthma and their doctor decide BT is right for them and the person is insured by one of these companies, the person will likely be denied treatment and experience significant difficulties and delays in fighting for access to this treatment.
What if your insurance company is not on the list?
More insurers are covering BT each year. That is great news, but there is more that can be done.
If your insurer is not on this list, consider writing to another insurer, perhaps one that operates in your area, to tell them what BT means to you.
Information for healthcare providers
If you treat patients with severe asthma and would like to advocate for coverage of BT, consider submitting a letter to an insurer that operates in your area.
