Do you think that you might need spine surgery?

By the time you finally get an appointment with a spine specialist you may feel that you are finally going to be able to have surgery, if it is deemed medically necessary.  What you might not be aware of is how controlling your insurance company may be in this process. 

Spine surgeons across the country are hearing they need more documentation from each case before payors will approve surgery. Sometimes surgeons can predict the type of documentation they will need, such as proof the patient took the appropriate pathway of physical therapy and epidural injections before deciding upon surgery; other times, the missing documentation isn’t quite as clear.
