Monday during my PT session, the therapist supplied me with a Tens unit, so that I can use it at home. We won't know for several weeks if my insurance company will cover it. It's a lousy company, and they don't cover much......The therapist said if they won't cover it for me, the Tens Company would call me, and give me the option to purchase it myself, or send it back, with no charge for the time I have had it. I don't know what the cost would be..... Anybody want to jump in here? And is the Tens good for your chronic pain? I have so many places that hurt, not sure where to put the patches first!
Also, this "wonderful" insurance company will cover my visit to a Pain Clinic, but they won't pay much for the Pain Pschologist. He wants $350. cash up front.. Are pain clinics the way to go, since my PCP is very good about perscribing the meds I need, and recommending treatments and visits to other Specialists if I want to see one? I'm just questioning the 2 days off work to get there, cost of gas, motel, food, etc. Since I'm already doing most of what I read on here that those Clinics do. Help??
