SCAI Asks Aetna to Update Clinical Policies on Atherectomy and Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) | SCAI

SCAI has sent two joint letters with the Society of Interventional Radiology, the Society for Vascular Surgery, the American College of Cardiology, and the Outpatient Endovascular and Interventional Society requesting that Aetna update their clinical policies on atherectomy and IVUS to reflect current standards of practice. 

This request comes on the heels of Aetna partnering with eviCore to require prior authorization on several peripheral vascular procedures, including atherectomy. Aetna will review our request as part of their clinical policy update process in early 2024.
