Interventional Radiology Procedures Are Typically Covered By Insurance

Coverage policies vary from insurance carrier to insurance carrier and insurance carriers often offer varying employer specific coverage plans. Most interventional radiology procedures are typically covered by insurance carriers. However, some advanced procedures may still viewed by the insurance carrier as "experimental and investigational" and these services need special consideration or preapproval. You must contact your local carrier regarding policies pertaining to your specific policy plan.
