Medical Policy Implementation: Interferential Stimulation for the Treatment of Pain and Other Conditions

Effective July 22, 2015, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey will change the way we consider certain claims for the use of an interferential current stimulator.

Based on the guidelines of our medical policy, Interferential Stimulation for the Treatment of Pain and Other Conditions, HCPCS codes S8130 or S8131 submitted on claims for services provided on and after July 22, 2015 will be denied as investigational/experimental services.

Review this revised policy in our online Medical Policy Manual.

Unless Horizon BCBSNJ gives written notice that all or part of the above changes have been cancelled or postponed, the changes will be applied to claims for dates of service on and after July 22, 2015.
