ISASS Provides Comments to Anthem on Sacroiliac Joint Fusion Practice Guidelines for Workers Compensation Coverage

On April 21, 2020, ISASS sent a comment letter to Anthem regarding their Sacroiliac Joint Fusion Practice Guideline which is used in many states/regions by Anthem for fee schedule and coverage policies. The ISASS letter asked that Anthem revise their policy guidelines to consider inclusion of ISASS’ updated SI Joint Fusion policy statement and the ISASS recommendations for appropriate criteria for SI Joint Fusion procedures and criteria on non-surgical options.
