- Question from Ettevyva: Do insurances generally cover diagnostic workup? If not, is it expensive?
- Answers - Christina Meyers Where I work, insurance does cover it. It is a diagnostic procedure for brain function, so it is covered. And it's not that expensive compared to surgery, MRI scans, etc.
- George Sledge, M.D. Some of the ancillary tests like thyroid or sleep apnea tests are relatively inexpensive diagnostic tests and are reimbursable.
