No, I have MEdicare starting in my late 30s through Social Secruity Disability. I was forced to file for disability when my employer provided insurance via COBRA refused to pay for my surgery. I found an Aetna Medicare Advantage plan and they ended up paying for 2 level lumbar Prodisc surgery in 2008.
Injured 9/01
Annular tears L4/5 & L5/S1
denied adr by insurance for 2 level charite as well as hybrid fusion at L5/S1 with Charite at L4/5.

New ins paid for 2 level lumbar prodisc surgery on 4/7/08 (at age 39) with Dr. Westerlund, at Core Orthop
