Joint replacement surgery is a covered benefit with most health plans including Medicare and Medicaid, but most insurance companies require that you meet certain guidelines before they will approve the coverage.
Since insurance coverage plans vary, be sure to familiarize yourself with your plan's:
- Medical review process
- Levels of coverage
Memorial Hermann accepts most insurance plans. However, this is not a guarantee that your insurance company will cover joint replacement surgery or other joint pain treatments. A Memorial Hermann business office representative will obtain all your information prior to your admission to a Memorial Hermann facility. Once the insurance verification is completed, the business office can better estimate your out-of-pocket expense and will help you understand what is covered by your health plan or government payor and what may be your financial responsibility for your surgery. Business office representatives work behind the scenes to help determine your covered benefit package and will contact you directly to answer any questions you might have. The goal is to provide you with insurance information prior to your arrival in order to increase your understanding of what is covered and what is your financial responsibility.
