United Healthcare (UHC) coverage of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation will begin March 1, 2022


This revision to the UHC policy is the result of a comment letter submitted to UHC from NASS and 11 other medical society members of the Multi-society Pain Workgroup (MPW).

The expanded spinal cord stimulator coverage indications will include complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), diabetic neuropathy, and failed back surgery syndrome. The policy also outlines changes to include coverage of dorsal root ganglion stimulation for treating refractory CRPS I and CRPS II. Read the full policy here.
