Boston Scientific Welcomes Progress on Pain Care Legislation
Date:6/23/2008

n management," said Michael Onuscheck, President of Boston Scientific's Neuromodulation Division. "The accredited pain physicians with whom we work have witnessed the devastating impact chronic pain can have on the people who serve our country. We are hopeful that should these bills become law, they will help expand and improve the quality of care for our active service personnel and our veterans in their battle against chronic pain."

An additional pain care bill, the National Pain Care Policy Act (HR 2994), introduced in the House by Rep. Lois Capps (D-CA), complements these efforts to address pain for our service members and veterans by calling for greater examination of pain management in the healthcare system as a whole. Rep. Capps' bill will help evaluate how acute and chronic pain are diagnosed, treated and managed in America, and help improve education, research and awareness of chronic pain to physicians and pain sufferers throughout the country.

"Boston Scientific will continue to work closely with Congressional leaders and others to promote this legislation," added Onuscheck. "We take our leadership responsibilities in this industry seriously and believe that improving the care for pain patients benefits all of us. Now that the House and Senate have moved to address the serious needs of our active military and veterans, we are hopeful that the National Pain Care Policy Act will be passed sometime this year."

Chronic pain presents a major challenge to the U.S. healthcare system. With an estimated 75 million Americans affected by chronic pain, the cost to the public in terms of health care, lost productivity and litigation is estimated at $100 billion every year. The psychosocial effects of chronic pain can result in job loss, depression, fear, anxiety, isolation, sleep disorders and marital and family dysfunction.
