Contact your insurance company to see if they cover the purchase of a unit. Some insurance companies specify the type of units they will reimburse for (some will only reimburse purchases for the briteLITE series of 10,000 lux light boxes).
Most insurance companies require the following:
- Your insurance company has a form you need to fill out. You can get it by calling member services, or going online to your insurance company’s website.
- A doctor’s prescription-including a “diagnosis code” from your doctor.
- An itemized bill of services rendered or products purchased along with date of service/purchase (your Apollo receipt).
- Procedure codes: HCPC: E0203 | CPT: 96900
