Health insurance or medical insurance will usually cover the cost of Spinal fusion surgery or back surgery if the Spinal fusion surgery or back surgery is considered medically necessary to prevent further problems.

If the back pain or spine issues are bad enough then the health insurance or other medical insurance will usually cover the cost of the surgery.

Or at least they may cover part of the cost of the Spinal fusion surgery or back surgery and you may need to pay a small portion of the cost.

However if the Spinal fusion surgery or back surgery is not medically required then health insurance or medical insurance will not cover the cost of it.

In that case you'll need to pay out of pocket the full price to have Spinal fusion surgery or back surgery.

Spinal fusion surgery can cost as much as $14,000.00 to $30,000.00 so if it's not medically needed then it would not be worth it.
