SIS Offers Evidence to BCBS in 5 States in Support of Coverage for RF Procedures

Wednesday, April 3, 2019  

On April 2, 2019, SIS offered evidence to BlueCross Blue Shield in 5 states (Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas) in support of coverage for:

  • radiofrequency ablation of the genicular nerves associated with knee osteoarthritis, and
  • radiofrequency denervation of the third occipital nerve (C2-3).

The Society’s comments refute classification of these procedures as investigational and advocate for coverage in appropriately selected patients.
