Registration and Meeting Materials Now Available for February 11, 2021, Multi-Jurisdictional Contractor Advisory Committee (CAC)/Subject Matter Expert Meeting Regarding Epidural Interventions for Chronic Pain Management

Due to the public health crisis this meeting will be held via Teleconference/Webinar ONLY.

On February 11, 2021, seven Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs); lead by Novitas Solutions (Jurisdictions H and L) and First Coast Service Options (Jurisdiction N), will host a multi-jurisdictional CAC/subject matter expert meeting.

The purpose of the meeting is to obtain advice from CAC members and a subject matter expert panel regarding the strength of published evidence on epidural interventions for chronic pain management. In addition to discussion during the meeting, the expert panel will vote on pre-distributed questions. CAC and expert panels do not make coverage determinations, but MACs benefit from their advice.

All compliant CAC members as well as the expert panelists will be given the opportunity to submit their answers to the voting questions and/or any written comments within one week of the meeting. The public is invited to attend as observers.

The meeting agenda, bibliography, and voting questions are now available. Please refer to the Novitas Multi-Jurisdictional CAC website for additional information. Teleconference/webinar link for registration hereExternal Website.
