Hi! After 9 months of pain mgmt,. it was determined (after nerve blocks) that I need the rhizotomy procedure (2 levels, both sides). I called to schedule yesterday and they said my insurance company only allows one shot at a time. So I called insurance co. and they said if Dr. submits note saying he can do all 4 at once and it is better to do it that way, they will approve it. So I called PM place today and told them that, and she said THE
IR billing dept said Dr. only does one a a time. I know from reading posts here that many get more than one level at a time. Is this true, or is there a reason why it is better to do one at a time, one week between each?? It seems crazy to me!
Thanks for any input!
Hoping to be pain-free soon!
