Insurance companies vary in their willingness to support Uterine Fibroid Embolization procedures. This is because it is a newer procedure than the surgical options, hysterectomy or myomectomy. If your case is well-documented, and supported by your gynecologist, your insurance company is likely to approve it. It can help to have the interventional radiologist submit a request to the insurance company on your behalf.
UFE is an advanced, safe, alternative procedure for women, and it is your right to have it as a medical treatment option. Much progress has been made in convincing insurance companies to cover this procedure, but sometimes you have to be a persistent advocate on your own behalf when dealing with insurance company authorizations.
