OBTAINING A PERFUSION SPECT BRAIN SCAN IN THE UNITED STATES
Each hospital or clinic will have its own registration and scheduling protocols. It is best to call the clinic/hospital department and inquire as to the procedure for scheduling. All will require a physician’s order.
You have a choice of working with your insurance company, but the chances are high that the insurance company will be resistant to paying for a perfusion SPECT brain scan. The well-established indications that insurance companies often will pay for are: seizure localization, traumatic brain injury, and dementia. Trying to get insurance to pay for the scan will delay matters for up to several weeks.
Most centers will offer a cash price.
