What Does Spine Surgery Cost?
The total cost of the procedure varies with each patient. The cost is dependent on the selected procedure(s), your insurance policy’s deductible and out-of-pocket maximum. Once we receive all of your insurance and medical information, including your MRI or CT scan, we can provide a recommended treatment plan and estimated out-of-pocket cost. We know cost of surgery is an important factor, and your Patient Care Manager will explain and go over costs prior to your procedure. We do our best to be transparent regarding what out-of-pocket expense you may incur and do everything we can to make your surgery cost as low and manageable as possible. Additionally, you can inquire with your Patient Care Manager about ways to finance your surgery.

Verify Your Insurance
For Patients with Private Insurance
BCBS, United Healthcare, etc.
North American Spine accepts most private insurance plans and can provide a free insurance verification of your specific policy to confirm we can work with your benefits.
For Patients with No Insurance
If you do not have health insurance, we may discuss discounted self-pay options. The self-pay cost is due upfront for all surgeries.
For Patients with a Public Plan (Medicare, Medicaid, etc.)
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept government policies (Medicare, Medicaid, Workers Comp, etc.) at this time. Please note that this also includes any secondary, tertiary, or supplemental plans. If you do have a government plan, you can call your insurance provider for a list of spine care providers who will work with your insurance. Additionally your primary care physician can help refer you to someone. We apologize for the inconvenience and wish you the very best of luck as you research your spine care options.
If you have public insurance or no insurance, we may discuss cash pay options. Cash-pay patients are given an estimated bill up-front, so you’ll know what to expect.
Spend Now Save Later
You may think you are saving money by delaying a procedure, but research shows the opposite. Patients who had minimally invasive spine surgery at North American Spine found not only that their quality of life increased, but also that their average yearly out-of-pocket costs dropped significantly after their procedure.
A minimally invasive North American Spine procedure also helps to reduce costs in these ways:
- It significantly decreases reliance on costly pain medications
- Many procedures are outpatient, eliminating the need to pay for an overnight hospital stay
- The risk of complications–including surgical infections–is reduced
- It minimizes recovery time – many patients return to work quicker than with traditional open procedures
