Participation is dependent on physician referral. Each patient's physician receives monthly progress reports. Physicians are also informed any time a change in condition is noted.
Most major insurance companies, as well as Medicare and Medicaid, cover all or part of the cost for participants who qualify. Because all policies vary, patients are encouraged to check with their insurance company for specific coverage.
