We recently received word that Blue Cross of Idaho has adopted a positive coverage policy for cervical total disc replacement!
BC of Idaho has over 400,000 covered lives and is the top payer in Idaho-a significant addition to the existing coverage for PDC in the state.
Important note: Typically, policy changes take some time to be communicated and thoroughly adopted by the administrators of insurance plans. There may be instances of continued denials of coverage. Please pass on this information to your surgeons’ staffs that do pre-authorizations for coverage. Make sure they have the updated policy to reference.
If you have questions regarding eligibility for cervical disc arthroplasty you may contact your insurance provider. You may also contact a Spine Center proficient in cervical disc arthroplasty, CDA Spine at (208) 765-9100.
