The Alliance submitted a letter to the DMEMAC Medical Directors regarding the application of New Provisions of Surgical Dressing LCD (L33831). The letter reported to the DMEMACs that there was significant disagreement and confusion over how certain LCD provisions should be applied. The Alliance requested clarification on the coverage criteria for collagen dressings and for clarity on confusing wound staging criteria and pressure injury terminology included in the policy.
