Third Party Payor Reviews

Third Party Payor Reviews

We are often asked by insurance companies or third party payors to independently review a particular spine case to see whether or not a proposed surgical procedure should be approved or denied.

We have expertise in all aspects of spinal surgery including revision cases, complex reconstruction and scoliosis, which is often lacking in a typical reviewers’s expertise or merely falling outside of their comfort zone. We are well aware of the myriad of unproven yet new technologies all too frequently offered to patients without the scientific data to justify or support its use. In other words, we recognize the value of evidence-based medicine in our decision making process. These reviews can save third party payors tremendous time and money and help to eliminate peer to peer and medical director reviews.

These services are available for a fee of $1,000/hour.
