Hot Tub/jacuzzi

has anyone else found that there rheumy has been able to write a prescription for a hot tub or Jacuzzi. if so has your insurance covered it.

My friend has rheumatoid arthritis and was able to get a RX from her doc. I don’t know if insurance covered it, but I know it was covered as medical equipment for tax purposes. She also claims the monthly electricity usage.

I've working in health insurance for 23 yrs. No your health insurance will never pay for a hot tub or a jacuzzi. Basically a physician can write a prescription for anything but that doesn't mean that insurance will pay for it.

I go to a gym every week to exercise in the warm pool called their "program pool". It is like exercising in a bath tub that comes up to my shoulders! It also has a hot tub and somebody else cleans it! We had a hot tub at home but we had to clean it and cover it in the winter. A bit of a pain. When it died I started going to this gym and it is $10/ week. Much cheaper than my hot tub!

I was a nurse for 38 years. No, insurance will not pay for it.
