On June 22, ISASS submitted a letter to Hayes in response to a Hayes Brief released December 29, 2016 reviewing sacroiliac joint fusion for treatment of low back pain. ISASS requested a meeting with Hayes to discuss the most current literature on the procedure as many of our members and their patients have experienced denials by insurers based on the Brief and its “C” rating.
