Pain management is divided across two clinical categories:
Pain management with device is hospital treatment for the implantation, replacement or other surgical management of a device required for the treatment of pain. For example: treatment of nerve pain and chest pain caused by coronary heart disease with a device such as an infusion pump or neurostimulator). This treatment is not covered on Bronze+ Hospital.
Pain management is hospital treatment for pain management that does not require the insertion or surgical management of a device. For example: treatment of nerve pain and chest pain due to cancer by injection of a nerve block. This treatment is covered on Bronze+ Hospital.
