Hello All, I need to get a Sculptra touch-up. My doctor, Dr. Freshette, passed away and I don't know any doctors that accept medicare for scultra treatment. Please reply if you can recommend someone. I think I can qualify for the product through an assistance program Thanks for your time.

I want to apply for assistant program to have Sculptra, my income taxes is about $30.000 a year, so I can get it, but I can't afford to pay $500.00 for doctor visit each time. is there anyone who knows a doctor who charge less? I'm in Chicago City. Than you!!!

I have had this treatment done 2 years ago and it was awesome but VERY expensive for me on disability. Now that it says Medicare approves this, how can we let provider know? I am attempting to get treatment and they state Medicare says it doesn't cover this "cosmetic" procedure. Any help would be appreciated. I'm not giving up ;)

I've been getting Sculptra through the compassionate use program. The cost of getting the actual injections,$350 per session for 8 sessions, however,is steep for someone on disability. How does Medicare really make the procedure any more affordable for people like me?

Craig, I am also insured and one time I got my insurance company to pay for it. The secretary at my dr. office was great, but I still had to pay his fee which was huge. Then my Doc. stopped submitting to insurance and it had to be self pay. I am curious to see how this is going to work with the insurance companies. It would be very unfair not to cover this as well.

Well first of all! It is about time!!! As for the comments about the medicare and what it is for as well as the free stuff. Well I dare any one of you to walk in my shoes for one week and see where you all stand as far as free! It is not free! I would rather have a full time job and have to work 50hrs a week for 40hrs pay ! Instead of trying to get the services that I am entitle to because of my illnesses. I worked for what money and benefits I get!

So now, when will Medicare cover lipodistrophy? My plastic surgeon has done 3 wonder procedures on my neck and back but doesn't get paid because Medicare calls it cosmetic. She never charged me but that doesn't sound fair that Medicare doesn't pay my surgeon. Duh!
