Now Some Insurance Covers Neurofeedback!
Insurance Coverage and......
The AMERICAN ACADEMY of PEDIATRICS has listed BIOFEEDBACK
as LEVEL ONE (Best support) for children with ADD or ADHD.
This is not the opinion of just one doctor, or even a group of doctors. This conclusion is based on evidence-based research . Medications act by covering up symptoms, biofeedback improves brain function by improving how the brain communicates with itself.
Like setting a bone and allowing the body to repair itself, neuro-biofeedback helps the brain improve by "setting" brain waves to a more functional level. There are virtually no side effects, plus your child does not have to take a pill for the rest of their life.
Blue Cross/Blue Shield is now covering neurofeedback. For now, they are the only insurance provider that covers treatment, but we are encouraging parents to call their provider to tell/encourage them to cover it as well.
If you have Blue Cross/Blue Shield, you may be covered for the entire training and assessment protocols. (Up to 40 sessions.) Individual co-pays may vary.

is a safe & effective DRUG-FREE method which actually helps the brain operate more efficiently, through the concept of self-regulation. Medications can help people cope with disorders, but they do nothing to actually heal the problem.
Neurofeedback has a 50 year history of successfully changing how the brain functions. By helping the brain help itself, we use computer-based monitoring of brain waves, slowly changing them throughout the treatment. We first start by mapping the brain, using this information in our individualized treatment plan to optimize the brain's ability to focus and learn, to improve impulse control in children, and to lower anxiety in both children and adults. Please visit our section on how neurofeedback works. Also my article Holistic Neuroscience originally published in Body/Mind/Spirit guide.
