Comments Submitted on WA HCA Health Technology Assessment on Spinal Injections

Tuesday, January 19, 2016  
SIS coordinated the drafting and submission of a letter joined by multiple other organizations to the Washington State Health Care Authority’s (WA HCA) Health Technology Assessment Program in response to the call for comments on their re-review of spinal injections. This review of spinal injections is premature, and according to WA HCA, was prompted by new evidence (i.e. Friedly’s LESS study) and new safety concerns (i.e. the FDA’s labeling changes for epidural injection of steroid). SIS and the other signatories believe that the current draft of the report does not adequately address the key questions posed and is not a satisfactory reference for the topic.
