ISIS Submits Comments to BCBS of Tennessee on Non-Coverage of Cervical Epidural Steroid Injections

Posted By Administration, Friday, November 22, 2013
On November 7, 2013 ISIS submitted a comment letter to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee opposing their draft policy, which states that epidural steroid injections for the treatment of pain are considered investigational.  ISIS strongly disagrees with this assessment and submitted a summary of evidence, an excerpt of a consensus document endorsed by 11 societies, as well as an invitation for BCBS to work together on developing a reasonable policy.  To see a copy of the letter, click here.
