It’s unfortunate but Medicare do not consider the treatment of Vitiligo as Medically Necessary and do not provide insurance coverage for Home UVB Narrow Band systems. Medicare does provide some coverage for home UV (Ultraviolet) systems for the treatment of Psoriasis but not Vitiligo.
For Psoriasis one of their documents reads “For Ultraviolet Cabinets: >Covered for selected patients with generalized intractable psoriasis. Using appropriate consultation, contractor should determine whether medical/other factors justify treatment at home rather than at alternative sites, e.g., outpatient department of a hospital.”
Cigna and Aetna also exclude coverage for UVB Narrow Band Systems for the treatment of Vitiligo.
