HyOx Medical Treatment Center administers hyperbaric oxygen therapy and other medical and rehabilitation services to patients with conditions guided by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS).*
*Composite list of conditions approved by UHMS, Medicare and major health plans. As with all procedures, insurance benefits are determined by the health plan’s hyperbaric oxygen therapy policy and the patient’s specific health benefits.
Potentially Therapeutic “Off-Label” Uses
In many instances, patients with conditions not on the “approved” list have been reported to benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
It’s likely new conditions will be added to the list of approved indications as additional research studies are completed. Until then, the use of hyperbaric oxygen for an indication not on the approved list must be considered an “off-label” use of the therapy.
HyOx and its medical staff adhere to guidelines established by the UHMS Ethics Task Force concerning the potentially therapeutic, off-label use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
