What are experimental procedures?
The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "experimental or unproven procedures."
Experimental or unproven procedures may hold out hope for seriously ill people with few other options, but health insurance typically won't provide coverage. These are treatments that would be considered unacceptable and ineffective by most doctors and not backed up by scientific research.
Health insurance plans that want to be certain their money is well spent usually exclude coverage for experimental or unproven procedures.
