This Post is For Anyone Who Has Had Artificial Disc Replacement:
If you have had this procedure you know it is not covered by most major insurance companies. They would rather you get the fusion, which as I'm sure your aware, has a lesser success rate and has a higher risk for future surgeries.
I am currently involved in a lawsuit against blue cross to try to get reimbursed for this surgery. I'm lucky enough that we were able to lay the money out for this surgery, but most people don't have this luxury and may be forced to live in pain in result of this procedure not being an option.
If you, or someone you know is, or was in the same situation, please contact me. Many have gone down this road and given up, I refuse to do so. If you would like to help, Please don't hesitate to contact me. There is power in numbers. Together we can make a difference.
