WA HCA announces Review of Facet Neurotomy

Posted By Administration, Friday, December 21, 2012

The Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) Director has selected a group of health technologies to undergo review and coverage decisions by the Health Technology Clinical Committee (HTCC) beginning in 2013.  On this list the HCA placed Facet Neurotomy for Cervical and Lumbar Pain.

To gather information and evidence for consideration in review of the selected topics, public comments will be accepted by the HCA until January 10, 2013 at 5pm.  All comments should be submitted to: shtap@hca.wa.gov

ISIS has been very heavily involved with the WA HCA’s review of spinal injections and due to those efforts majority of the procedures reviewed at the time continue to be covered.  We will again do everything possible to assure appropriate coverage and access to facet neurotomy for our patients.
