UHC: Coverage Policy Update: ESI

Dear interventional pain colleagues and leaders.

We received notice a new United healthcare policy allowing a maximum of three (3) ESI (regardless of level, location, or side) in a year.
These actions by United Health Care must of course be challenged. 

Our patients come first.

“There’s no scientific basis to limit lumbar epidural injections to three per year. This will only cause patients to be forced into having surgery”

Is the UHC policy to limit ESI to 3 per year (regardless of level, location, or side) ridiculous?
