SIS Comments on BCBS of Massachusetts’s Coverage Denial of HF10 SCS Therapy

Tuesday, January 31, 2017  

Counter to controlled studies, supportive literature, and clinical experiences, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts issued policy number 472 that designates 10 kHz, high frequency spinal cord stimulation therapy (HF10) as investigational and not covered. 

On January 30, 2017, the Spine Intervention Society submitted comments highlighting evidence supporting the efficacy of HF10 and requesting a 24-month delay in the implementation of the policy to allow for further evidence to be published and considered. Additionally, SIS has requested that the comment letter be considered at a Blue Cross Blue Shield policy meeting on January 31, 2017.

Read the comment letter for further details.
