I tried to research this with my local Medicare Carrier. JMAC14...however the LCD has been retired. The retired document did not answer my question which is...
Patient had two MBB diagnostic facet injections and the successful rhizotomy that lasted him greater that 18 months. The question is do we need to repeat the diagnositics...in order to do a repeat rhizotomy? Does he need two diagnostic blocks for a second rhizotomy 18 months after the first.
