Is functional neurology worth the cost?

I was very surprised my the cost of the initial consult. I thought it would be cheaper or free.

As I understand it, and I only know what I've read on the internet, it includes various rehabs depending on what the patient needs. I know that vestibular rehab and visual rehab are 2 of the things they do, and they do other things, too. Depending on your particular issues there may be cheaper ways of dealing with your problems. I've had cognitive rehab in the past, and insurance covered it. I'm currently doing vestibular rehab, and insurance covers it. I would recommend vestibular rehab or cognitive rehab if needed as they are the only ones I've had. I think functional neurology is still considered somewhat experimental which is why your insurance may not cover it.
