Did Insurance Pay For Your ADR?

I am preparing an appeal in anticipation of denial of coverage by my insurance company for artificial disc replacement surgery (ADR). I am collecting information for the precedent section of my appeal. If you were approved by your insurance company for ADR, I would GREATLY appreciate the following information.

First Name, Last Name
Surgery Date
Diagnosis: e.g. herniated disc at C6/7
Treatment: e.g. ADR at C6/7
Insurance Company that paid
Surgeon that performed ADR

Many ADR patients desperately need this information to support their appeals. If you do not mind me sharing this information with other patients making appeals, please state this in your email. If you would prefer not, I will honor your request and keep the information private. You can forward the information to the following email address.


If you would like to communicate with me first to develop a comfort level that I am just a regular guy trying to get what I should from the insurance company and help other patients at the same time, please send a note to the same email address.
