SIS Promotes Access to Genicular Nerve Radiofrequency Ablation

Monday, November 19, 2018  

In November 2018, SIS submitted four comment letters supporting access to radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the genicular nerves to treat pain associated with knee osteoarthritis: Premera BlueCross, Blue Cross of Idaho, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City, and the Washington State Health Care Authority Health Technology Assessment Program. The letters present the best available evidence to refute these groups’ classification of these procedures as investigational and advocates for coverage in appropriately selected patients.
