Coverage RecommendationsAre you looking for some in-depth reference material and/or guidance to identify appropriate spinal care coverage? Do you spend hours searching for answers on why your claim was denied? Do you wonder where to look for available supporting literature? If so, we have answers for you!

To address the complexity of the health care delivery system and the ongoing demands of providers and patients, the North American Spine Society (NASS) developed credible and reasonable coverage recommendations to advocate and promote fair coverage decisions for spine care patients like you.

We strongly encourage you to use these coverage recommendations as a reference to guide you and your doctor. These recommendations may assist you in accessing appropriate coverage decisions and may guard against inappropriate denial of quality spinal care.

With a strong mission and vision to foster the highest quality, ethical and evidence-based spine care, NASS continues to promote patient access to better care and better outcomes.
