Health insurance is a rather ambiguous thing, and people often don’t know for sure what is covered and what is not. It can differ from insurance company to other insurance company, from country to country. That is why there is no exact answer to whether your health insurance covers cryotherapy sessions.

But there are some points that are mostly common for different health insurances: 

  • They typically cover most doctor and hospital visits, prescription drugs, wellness care, and medical devices;
  • Most health insurance will not cover elective or cosmetic procedures, beauty treatments, off-label drug use, or brand-new technologies;
  • If health coverage is denied, policyholders can appeal for exceptions or allowances based on an individual’s situation and prognosis.

That means that the status of cryotherapy in your local legislation will significantly influence your health insurance coverage. One more thing – whether you will be able to prove to the insurance company that cryo sessions are an integral part of your wellness care. 

But in most cases, cryotherapy sessions are not covered by health insurance. But we are sure that it is only a matter of time.
