You may be wondering about the conditions we've seen at Hyperbaric Medical Solutions (HMS).
You’ll typically see them grouped into two categories: on label and off label.
So what exactly does that difference mean? Let us explain:
On Label Conditions:
Basically, on label conditions are those that the FDA has approved for treatment so they'll likely be covered by Medicare and other commercial insurance companies.
HMS on label conditions are as follows:
Off Label Conditions:
Off label refers to those conditions that the FDA has not yet approved for a certain treatment, although the conditions may have been studied and documented by research; and studies may be ongoing. In many cases, their treatment may be approved by regulatory bodies in other countries. In general, off label conditions in the U.S. are not covered by insurance. The conditions seen at HMS that are currently considered off label are only those with documented efficacy and it is explained to each of these patients that treatment for their particular condition is not yet recognized by the FDA.
HMS off label Conditions are as follows:
