Reimbursement Assistance: Call 1-800-895-7764


As a newer treatment option available in the U.S., Total Disc Replacement (TDR) is not yet universally covered by all health insurance providers. Synthes is working to increase coverage of TDR by providing a multidimensional reimbursement support program to patients and physician practices.




​The ProDisc Patient Assistance Line (PAL) works on behalf of patients to petition insurance providers to cover TDR procedures, case-by-case.


​The Payer Relations team identifies insurers who have reviewed multiple TDR claims and works with local surgeons to help them effectively advocate for coverage policies with those insurers.



Through this program, we’re making progress. One-by one, insurers are issuing positive TDR coverage policies. Talk with your TDR candidates about this unique support service and help keep the momentum going.

*Reimbursement is dynamic. Coding, coverage and payment are subject to change. Synthes cannot guarantee reimbursement for any procedure associated with the use of its products. Providers should contact their specific payers if they have questions regarding coding, coverage or payment.
