Will my insurance cover a Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?


Every insurance company is different, and you will need to find out what kind of coverage yours offers for UFE. Dr. Linda Hughes, M.D., had this to say:

“Most insurance companies will pay for the uterine fibroid embolization. It has been many years since we’ve had an issue with an insurance company challenge the actual procedure for they realized it is a short procedure compared to surgery. It is a shorter recovery time and patients are back to work sooner. So it’s in everyone’s best interest for them to authorize and pay for the procedure.”
