Mobilizing Our Community
This is a critical time for the spine community. Recent changes to regulations and insurance guidelines mean that a patient who qualified for coverage two years ago may not be eligible today. By helping advocate for The Better Way Back® community, you can speak out for patients who may be too consumed with pain to speak for themselves.
How can you help? By writing letters or e-mails to help influence individuals and organizations to change policy. The Better Way Back community has reached out to local legislators, the media, insurance providers, and industry associations in an effort to effect change. You can also help spread the word about spine disorders and educate policy makers about innovative treatment options.
In your effort, you’ll team with healthcare providers, spine industry organizations, and patient advocates. Together, we can overturn restrictive and uninformed treatment guidelines.
Please contact The Better Way Back community if you would like to take action and join the fight. E-mail us at info@TheBetterWayBack.org or call 1-800-745-7099.
“I am off all medication now, with physical therapy still necessary, but I’ll be looking for work to be a contributing member of my community, instead of being a high-liability to the insurance company. Please reconsider your stance on stricter guidelines for minimally disruptive spine procedures. Many more people can benefit greatly from these medically necessary spinal fusion procedures and, in turn, become an asset of wellness, instead of a liability for the insurance companies.”
