SIS Offers Specific Policy Recommendations to Horizon BCBSNJ on Epidural Steroid Injections

Friday, June 15, 2018  

On June 8, 2018, SIS requested that Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey revise their proposed epidural steroid injections policy. The SIS comment letter addresses issues including needle placement for transforaminal injections and selective nerve root blocks, the medical necessity of repeat epidural injections at different levels when no diagnostic or therapeutic relief is achieved with an initial injection, and the duration of conservative treatment required prior to an initial epidural steroid injection.
