Spinal Cord Stimulator

Posted by Thomas Brown | Sep 16, 2019 | 0 Comments

There are pros and cons when the only treatment alternative for further of medical care is the implanting of a spinal cord stimulator (SCS).

The cost is not just in the surgical insertion of the device but the management and replacement of it as well. A spinal cord stimulator cost adds about $150,000 to the cost of a case.

Most workers' compensation insurance companies take the position that if the device is recommended by the doctor in charge of one's medical care, they “cannot afford” to settle the claim.

Many lawyers who represents the worker try to avoid a spinal cord stimulator because their clients want to settle at some time in the future.
