How to order a MEG

The MEG needs to be ordered by the referring physician.  If you have any questions about the study, please call Deirdre Foxe (617) 726-8517.

Who qualifies for an MEG

The MEG is ordered by the referring clinician, usually a neurologist or neurosurgeon.  Patients with epilepsy that is unresponsive to medication and is being considered for surgery may qualify for a MEG.  This should be discussed with your doctor before scheduling the examination.

Will my insurance pay?

Currently, there are many insurance carriers who cover MEG for patients who are in need of one.  Others, unfortunately, require an appeal by the patient, their physician, and possibly the doctors involved in the MEG examine itself.
