New UnitedHealthcare Benefit for Low Back Pain Helps Reduce Invasive Procedures and Address the Opioid Epidemic

UNH

Based on a UnitedHealthcare analysis, by 2021 this benefit design has the potential to reduce the number of spinal imaging tests by 22%, spinal surgeries by 21%, opioid use by 19%, and lower the total cost of care for eligible plan participants and employers.1. “With millions of Americans experiencing low back pain currently or at some point during their lifetimes, we believe this benefit design will help make a meaningful difference by improving health outcomes while reducing costs.”. The benefit design was informed by a recent study by OptumLabs and the Boston University School of Public Health that showed higher out-of-pocket costs made it less likely for patients with low back pain to choose clinically recommended noninvasive treatments, such as physical therapy and chiropractic care. For example, people with a copay of more than $30 were 29% less likely to see a physical therapist than patients whose copay was $0. To treat low back pain, the American College of Physicians (ACP) recommends exercise and the use of non-pharmacologic and nonsurgical approaches including physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.5 These noninvasive treatment options help 95% of people with low back pain recover after 12 weeks.6 Muscle relaxants and imaging, such as an X-ray or MRI, should be secondary options, and spinal surgery should be a last resort.
