Neuravive, the MR-guided focused ultrasound treatment for medication-refractory essential tremor, is a Medicare covered benefit in 25 states. INSIGHTEC is continuing efforts to increase Medicare coverage so that more patients have access to this procedure.

  • Coverage went into effect on September 24, 2018 for Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia
  • Coverage went into effect on on October 1, 2018 for Kentucky and Ohio
  • Coverage went into effect on July 1 for Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Michigan, and Missouri and on April 1 for Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

It is our understanding that per Medicare Rules and Regulations, Medicare beneficiaries traveling outside of their home state for treatment at a facility providing MRgFUS would be subject to the Medicare contractor coverage decision based on where the treatment is performed. We recommend confirming with your local Medicare contractor prior to treatment.
