So I am thinking about trying the Spinecor, the only issue it comes down to is like money. Thte Spinecor costs around $3,000 I heard and an appointment is like $400. What insurances pays for this? Does Blue Cross/Blue shield? I have heard that the newer braces are not covered by many insurances yet.

Hi Sarah ~ I got my Spinecor brace in April of this year (in the US) and it was covered 60% out of network. If i had been in network the cost would have been covered 100% (per my insurance representative). Your best answers regarding this will come from your own insurance representative - such things vary from insurance provider to insurance provider. Hope this helps.

Money is nto an issue anymore, with insurance we should be able to afford it. Will they accept it though is the question? My scoliosis is noticable but it isn't severe. I wasn't sure about that.

The main issues now are, where can I go, and is this a good idea for me.
