A provider would only offer a service to a patient if considered medically necessary and appropriate for the patient's diagnosis or condition. He/She should only offer the service (experimental or not) to those patients in which he would feel that this would medically benefit them. I cant really see a situation in which he would think one procedure would be beneficial for every single patient. If he is only offering this service to commerical patients and not patients with other payors, I would be a little wary about this. You shouldn't only offer a service to a patient because their insurance may pay and or you can bill the patient if their insurance denies as experimental.
