Does Medicare cover Deep Brain Stimulation?
This FDA approved procedure is covered by Medicare for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and Essential Tremor. However, this is not the case in all states. Some states’ programs do not cover DBS surgery. Outside of Medicare, most insurance companies are also covering the costs of DBS surgery. To determine if Medicare in your state, or your individual insurance policy covers all or a portion of the costs, you would need to contact your benefit representative directly.
