Default Insurance won't cover lumbar fusion

Hi all.

I am embroiled in an appeal process with my insurance company because they keep denying my L4/L5 lumbar fusion as "not medically necessary". My neurosurgeon has indicated that I meet every criteria and it was still denied. Has anybody gotten their insurance company to cover this? I have a level 2 appeal tomorrow over the phone. Hence my urgency.

Thank you very much,
