Is Spine Surgery Covered by Insurance?

Understanding the importance of healthcare accessibility, here at NJ Spine and Orthopedics, we accept a variety of spine surgery insurance coverage to accommodate as many patients as possible. The facility works with several major insurance providers, including:

Watch Our Patient Stories Below

  1. UnitedHealthcare (UHC) Choice Plus: This plan offers patients flexibility and a wide range of choices in doctors and hospitals. UHC Choice Plus is known for its comprehensive coverage and nationwide network.

  2. Aetna Choice POS II: This plan allows patients more freedom in choosing healthcare providers and specialists without requiring referrals. Aetna Choice POS II is appreciated for its balance between flexibility and cost-effectiveness.

  3. Cigna Open Access: Cigna’s Open Access plans provide a large network of doctors and hospitals, giving patients the liberty to choose specialists without primary physician referrals. This plan is designed to offer convenience and comprehensive coverage.

It is important for patients to note that NJ Spine and Orthopedics does not accept HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) or EPO (Exclusive Provider Organization) plans for laser spine surgery coverage. This decision is based on the facility’s commitment to providing patient-centric care without the restrictions often imposed by these types of insurance plans.

Furthermore, NJSO does not participate in Medicare & Medicaid programs in relation to spine surgery coverage. This decision is based on various administrative and policy considerations. Patients covered under Medicare & Medicaid are advised to consult with their plan administrators for alternative options for spine and orthopedic care.
