What if your insurance plan is not listed? We try to work with all patients even if we are not in-network with their plan. Most insurance plans have out of network benefits that we can work with. Our office staff will help to determine the benefits your plan will pay and answer any questions you may have.

If Dr. Bullard recommends a procedure that requires preauthorization from your insurance plan, our office staff will submit the necessary paperwork for you.

Patient Information for Insurance Denial of Spinal Fusion Surgery

If you have been denied by your private insurance carrier for a physician recommended lumbar spinal fusion surgery, you do have a right to appeal the decision of your insurance carrier.

We offer this page as a resource to aid you in your appeals process. Triangle Neurosurgery can offer some help in this matter for our patients. However, it is the patient responsibility as policy holder to directly contact your insurance company for your health care needs.

Steps To Take if You Have Been Denied Fusion Surgery:

1. Contact your private insurance carrier let them know you intend to appeal their decision to deny your surgery. The direct number to call them can be found on the denial letter that you get from your private insurance company or you can call the number located on the back of your insurance card.

2. Contact our office. We will be able to help you write your appeal letter. You can also find some more information on the NCDOI website

3. File your appeal with your insurance carrier. Your insurance company should be able to give you specific guidelines on what they need for the appeal.

4. Contact your state representatives. A full listing of your state representative may be found here.
