Wednesday, January 30, 2019  

On January 29, 2019, SIS submitted a comment letter to Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield West Virginia in support of radiofrequency ablation of the genicular nerves associated with knee osteoarthritis. The Society’s comments refute classification of these procedures as investigational and advocate for coverage in appropriately selected patients. Highmark West Virginia serves Delaware, West Virginia, and portions of Pennsylvania.
