Hi all. One huge factor in making the decision to have the Botox treatment is often how to pay for it. In a recent Reddit thread from a patient who was treated at Maze Women’s Sexual Health this past December, she writes:
“I have Blue Cross/Blue Shield of New England. I gave my insurance info to the people at Maze and they pretty much did all the work. They reached out to my insurance company, my insurance company said that I had to have a form signed by my primary care doctor and returned to them. Maze faxed my primary the paper, she signed it and faxed it back to Maze and they sent it along to my insurance company. It was super easy on my end 🙂
“Yes I was considered out of network, but they covered it like an in network Doctor. They sent mine to my primary general practitioner, but she’s who does my paps anyway, so I don’t have an actual gynecologist. I think they just want you primary whoever, it’s like a referral.”
For those wanting the Botox procedure but who are worried about how to pay for it, it is definitely worth talking to Maze as, like this patient above, insurance could cover the treatment program either in full or in part.December 7, 2016 at 6:32 pm #20265Cathleen Kneidl, RPA-CParticipant

How to pay for treatment is a real issue and dealing with insurance companies can be confusing

Navigating the insurance and payment can be dizzying, and add yet another reason to give up on getting help. Don’t give up!!January 6, 2017 at 4:09 pm #20385Heather34Moderator
