SIS Comments on Oregon Health Authority's Coverage Guidance on Percutaneous Interventions

Tuesday, January 19, 2016  
On January 19, SIS submitted comments to the Oregon Health Authority on their Scope Statement for the development of a Coverage Guidance on Percutaneous Interventions for Low Back Pain. The scope statement defined the populations, interventions, comparisons and the outcomes that were considered most important in determining whether changes to the existing coverage guidance are warranted. The current Coverage Guidance indicates that the topic will be reviewed following publication of the AHRQ technology assessment on spinal injections for low back pain. SIS’ comments highlight the AHRQ report's significant methodological flaws and urges Oregon Health Authority to be aware of these errors and not repeat them.
