If a service utilizing a Wright Medical Technology product is denied, it is important that the physician and/or facility advocate for the patient in the form of an appeal. As the manufacturer, Wright is able to provide supportive materials, but is unable to advocate or intervene directly on behalf of the patient with their insurance company. Below, you will find information to support appeal efforts. In addition, helpful published materials (by product) are available elsewhere on the Wright Medical Technology website. These are also available from local Sales Representatives. Lastly, patient involvement is key; the most successful appeals are those in which the patient is an advocate for themselves.
