Why isn’t the recommended treatment a covered benefit?

Dr. James R. Knochel will diagnose and provide treatment based on professional judgment and not on the cost of care. Some employers or insurance plans exclude coverage for necessary treatment as a way to reduce their costs. Your plan may not include this particular treatment or procedure, although Dr. James R. Knochel deemed the treatment as necessary.
