As part of its mission to foster the highest quality, evidence-based and ethical spine care, the NASS Board of Directors approved the formation of multi-specialty team to focus on defining appropriate coverage positions to assist payors, physicians and their patients on fair coverage for spine care. NASS is developing credible and reasonable coverage recommendations based on extensive literature research while incorporating existing NASS health policy comments and evidence-based guidelines.
NASS coverage recommendations are developed to advocate for NASS’ positions on various clinical and practice issues to ensure continued provision of quality spine care. NASS will continue its efforts to advocate for fair and appropriate coverage decisions while promoting evidence-based medicine.
