The Alliance submitted comments to Novitas Solutions on wound care draft LCD (DL35125). Comments noted that the LCD lacks compelling medical evidence and clinical practice guidelines support for the utilization parameters proposed for debridement and negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). The Alliance also expressed concern about the changes in coverage for disposable NPWT (dNPWT). The comments point out that FCSO may be relying on problematic proprietary claims data as a main source in crafting the draft regulation. The comments also note inaccurate information and confusing/conflicting language found throughout the policy.
