SIS Urges Blue Cross of ID to Cover Lateral Branch RF Neurotomy for Sacroiliac Joint Pain

Tuesday, May 15, 2018  

The Diagnosis and Treatment of Sacroiliac Joint Pain coverage policy of Blue Cross of Idaho excludes coverage for lateral branch radiofrequency neurotomy, classifying it as investigational.

On May 10, 2018, the Spine Intervention Society (SIS) submitted a comment letter to the insurer recommending that the procedure is an appropriate treatment for suitably selected patients, based on the SIS-convened multispecialty collaborative-endorsed set of appropriate use criteria for sacroiliac interventions.
