offer insurance filing services for the Alpha-Stim® M when
purchased directly from Allevia Health, Inc. Most private insurance
plans approve the Alpha-Stim® M when this device is prescribed
for some type of chronic
pain in the body (below the head). A partial payment of less
than 50% of the retail price of the device is typical. Depending
on the allowable amount, co-insurance, and out-of-network benefits,
the payment may be well below 50% and the approved amount may
be applied to the client's deductible. The Alpha-Stim® is
always sold out-of-network; there are no in-network distributors
(preferred DME providers) for this device
at this time.
diagnoses other than pain below the head, and for the Alpha-Stim® AID,

or any particular amount of payment.
3: It usually takes 30-60 days for an insurance company
to fully process a claim for an Alpha-Stim® device. If
your insurance claim is approved, the payment we receive from
insurance company will be applied to the purchase of your Alpha-Stim® or
to the latter payments on your rent-to-own plan, thus eleminating
those payments. If your insurance company pays the full retail
price of your Alpha-Stim®, which is very unlikely unless
you have an active motor vehicle claim, then we will refund
your rental payments, including the damage deposit, or the
purchase amount entirely.
What if my insurance does not cover the Alpha-Stim®?

payments due, or if you continue
will ultimately own your device at the end of the rental

given its efficacy and safety, this technology is one of the
most cost effective treatment options available for the treatment
pain. It also comes with five year warranty and technical support
