Cost of viscosupplement injections (Synvisc, Neovisc) is covered by most of private insurance or health benefits plans, or can be paid by patient directly as out-of-pocket medical expense. Private insurance typically cover viscosupplements as “injections” or “devices”, not as “medications”. Your physician can provide you with pseudo DIN numbers for these injections to check with your insurance company. Our office purchases viscosupplements directly from the manufacturer and provides it to patients before procedure along with receipt and prescription, which can be later submitted to insurance company for reimbursement.
