CMS Lists Epidurals and Neurostimulators on a Review List

Posted By Administration, Friday, December 21, 2012

On November 27, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services published a list of topics which "may have the potential to be subjects for further evaluation using literature reviews, claims based analyses, or as subjects for analysis in a National Coverage Determination (NCD)”.  Among other topics, CMS named epidural and transforaminal injections and implantable central nervous system stimulators for intractable pain. 

Although, at this point, no indication has been made by CMS about any immediate plans to review the spine interventional procedures they listed – ISIS is committed to continue its work with Medicare representatives to advocate for appropriate access to these procedures for our patients.
