I am pretty sure that the place in NJ you are referring to dara is the place I went to in CT. They don't particiapte with BCBS but...the new place we went to does and I'm so thrilled to say that they WILL cover it at 70%, so we pay $750 out of pocket.

Trish..I was ready to fight this if denied.

Kdreher- The place in NJ is (my guess) the same place I go to in IL...they do take BCBS 'cuz that's the only kind of insurance we have. :-) I'm glad that you're getting good coverage. Those DOC bands cost mega-moolah!!!!

dara, not sure how it works but I have Federal BCBS and the first place we went to does not participate. The place we are with now does and in the past year BCBS has denied every claim they had filed...but due to my Federal BCBS they have exceptions and I met them so I pay $750 out of pocket. Michael's helmet will be here this Thursday so we are looking forward to this. Interesting as the second place did not specificy any PT needed for any neck muscle issues. IMO he's fine just needs to fix the flat spot.

So sorry to hear about the diagnosis {{{HUGS}}}. I know how you are feeling right now. My preemie little boy was diagnosed with mild/moderate plagiocephaly at 4 months (real age). We did PT with him every day for about 6 months at home and practiced repositioning. After that diagnosis he was only ever flat on his back during diaper changes. The repo really worked for him. He is now 11 months old (real age) and it is not noticeable at all. I know the struggles and feelings you are dealing with right now, just know that you are making the decision that is right for your little one and your family and it will all be better soon. The others are correct. Seeing your son in the DOC band is harder on the parents than it is the child.
Cheers,
