Neurological testing and assessment

Will my insurance cover these treatments?
This is a complicated question because insurance coverage depends on the specific plan policies and exclusions. We cannot determine your benefits until we have a specific diagnosis and treatment plan. In most cases, you can expect "some" benefits
from either your dental or medical plan, but rarely a 100% coverage.
How long will it take before I am better?
In most cases, relief can be achieved within a short period of time.
