What happens after our consultation?
If your child has been identified as a pectus brace candidate, the clinical team will reach out to the Financial Clearance team to pursue a prior authorization and to determine if your insurance company will cover the brace.
How long should the prior authorization process take?
It can take up top 30 days to get the prior authorization approval. Once a determination has been made, a Financial Clearance Specialist will reach out to you. If you have not heard from a member of the Financial Clearance team 30-45 days after your consultation, please reach out to Financial Clearance at (816) 302-1650, option 4 for an update. Please note, if you have any concerns related to benefits or timeline concerns with your plan, please alert the clinic team and/or the Financial Clearance team immediately.
How much does a Pectus Brace cost?
If the insurance company agrees to pay for the brace, a member of the Financial Clearance team will call you with an estimated out of pocket cost and communicate any deposit amounts that may be required. If you agree to move forward, the brace will be ordered. A member of the clinical team will call you to schedule your appointment for the brace fitting. Once your child has their fitting appointment, the insurance company will be billed for the brace. If your insurance does not cover the Pectus Brace, there may be a no insurance discounted price available, and you may be eligible for financial programs.
Important note: The brace is not billed at the time of the ordering of the brace. The brace is billed at the completion of the follow-up appointment for the fitting. Because it can take up to 8 weeks for the brace to arrive, the estimated patient balance that is provided by Financial Clearance prior to the brace being ordered may change based on where you are at in your benefit year. Please make sure you communicate to the clinical team If you have any timeline concerns and how the approximate brace fitting appointment date may negatively affect your cost deductible/coinsurance amount. Examples: New insurance, deductible starting over for a new calendar year, employer changing, etc.
