Reimbursement Support

Our living proof promise is to guide physicians and facilities through the reimbursement process, gain procedure access for patients who can benefit from the Intracept Procedure, and educate insurance companies along the way.

Reimbursement Support Center

Relievant has a dedicated team of professionals to assist in the prior authorization of the Intracept Procedure. The prior authorization process involves obtaining advance notification from an insurance company that medical necessity and other coverage criteria have been met as set forth by the insurance company.

The Relievant team works alongside the patient and physician throughout the prior authorization process in an attempt to obtain approval for the Intracept Procedure.

The Intracept Procedure is an outpatient procedure that is typically performed in either a hospital outpatient department (HOPD) or an ambulatory surgery center (ASC). As of January 1, 2022, two Category I Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes, 64628 and 64629, are in effect for the Intracept Procedure. Reimbursement by a payer will depend upon the contract with the facility.
