What does an allergist do?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 50 million Americans have allergies. So many of these people would benefit greatly from seeing an allergist.
An allergist is a specialist in diagnosing, treating, and/or managing allergies and other conditions. They can help patients with allergies, asthma, immunodeficiencies, allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, eczema, or immune system disorders, and provide medication, pulmonary testing, allergy testing, and many other services.
These professionals can test patients for allergies and offer immediate or ongoing care if necessary, so they are very helpful for patients suffering from allergies.
Is allergy testing covered by Medicare?
One of the biggest issues with allergies is determining precisely what you’re allergic to, and this is why professional allergy testing is so useful. For some patients, testing can be vital, as some allergic reactions can be fatal. For patients suffering from only mild allergies, allergy testing can still be useful. It’s affordable and accessible for most patients.
Medicare and Medicaid can cover certain allergy tests like skin tests. If you have a documented history of allergies or allergic reactions, and if your symptoms are not controlled by therapy, you will likely be covered. Medicare will generally cover testing if there is a considerable probability that you’ll be exposed to any particular allergens in question. Here at Express Healthcare LLC, we provide proven methods of allergy testing that are usually covered by Medicare and Medicaid. We also accept most common insurance providers.
