How can Zimmer Biomet support me?

As a potential candidate for cervical disc replacement, Zimmer Biomet offers an Access-To-Care program. This service is intended to help establish coverage with commercial insurers who are not currently covering Mobi-C for one or two levels.

I've been denied coverage by my current insurance provider, what do I do next?

One way we can help you obtain coverage is to support your appeal of a denial via processes that are established by your insurance company.

How long does the process usually take?

It is important to know that the appeals process can take one to three months to complete. We will push the timeline as much as we can, of course, and you are free to opt out of the process at any point along the way.

How do I find a trained surgeon in my area?

Only trained surgeons that are actively implanting Mobi-C are listed on the surgeon finder at www.cervicaldisc.com/surgeon-locator. The FDA requires surgeons to complete training before implanting Mobi-C.  The training includes detailed lectures on product design, surgical technique, and Mobi-C study data. Training also includes hands-on experience with the instruments and implants, which for many surgeons was conducted in a bioskills lab.

The surgeon finder is a free service, helping patients to find qualified surgeons. Since surgeons must choose to be included in the surgeon finder, the surgeon finder list on www.cervicaldisc.com may not represent the complete list of all trained Mobi-C surgeons. You should inquire directly with your surgeon about their Mobi-C training status and surgical experience.
