Does the health insurance company cover the costs of curpal for carpal tunnel syndrome?

Contents

Until now, the only option for people suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome was surgery. That is different now. With curpal® you can treat carpal tunnel syndrome without surgery and without the use of a wrist splint. What customers increasingly want to know: Does the health insurance company cover the costs of curpal® for carpal tunnel syndrome?

It is important to know when asking this question: curpal® is a cuff for widening the carpal tunnel , but is not considered a therapeutic device; rather, the device offers symptomatic treatment.

In contrast to the splint prescribed by the doctor, which is intended to stabilize the hand at night and which also offers symptomatic treatment, the use of curpal® actively relieves the carpal tunnel by stretching the hand and applying pressure to the back of the hand.

The classic indication for carpal tunnel syndrome is surgery. However, treatment with curpal® can make surgery unnecessary. We hear this again and again from our customers. That’s why we’re often asked why health insurance companies don’t routinely cover the costs of the device.

Although curpal® has medical approval, it is not yet listed as an aid in the catalogue of reimbursable products. This is precisely the reason why the purchase costs of the device are not routinely covered by health insurance companies.

However, we recommend that you always check with your own health insurance provider. Click here for more frequently asked questions.
