SIS Offers Guidance on Appropriate Coverage Policies for Denervation Procedures

Friday, December 7, 2018  

On December 4, 2018, SIS submitted comments to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona regarding their coverage policy, “Neuroablation and Other Procedures for Treatment of Chronic Pain” SIS recommends against coverage of chemodenervation and cryodenervation for facet-mediated pain and advocates for coverage of lateral branch radiofrequency neurotomy for suitably selected patients, based on the SIS-convened multispecialty collaborative-endorsed set of appropriate use criteria for sacroiliac interventions.
