That was several years ago after my lower back pain was coming from my SI joint.
Now I'm in need of the ablation procedure and am using a new pm since the one who did the first one is out on leave.
This place is telling me I have to have 2 medial branch blocks ..yes 2 before the insurance will approve it.
I am going to call the insurance company myself to find out.
I have BCBS PPO insurance and wondering if anyone else was required to go through 2 of these medial branch blocks if the first one gave 80 percent relief.
I don't really trust this place but I have to get this done and don't want to start over finding a new pm .
I like the doctor it's the office staff that ate not the sharpest knives in the drawer.
