Is uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) covered by insurance?

Yes. Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) also known as Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) is routinely covered by insurance payors including Medicare and Medicaid. Depending on the individual plan, will determine how much the patient will be responsible for following the procedure. Most plans have an amount (called the deductible) which the patient will need to pay before insurance coverage kicks in. After that, a certain percentage will be paid by the payor (typically 70-100%). Whatever remaining percentage there is (if any) is the patient's responsibility to pay.
