The Alliance submitted comments to the DMEMAC medical directors requesting that the future Surgical Dressing LCD (L33831) be withdrawn. The Alliance outlined ways in which the LCD undermined clinical judgment and imposed unnecessarily strict frequency limitations on all dressings. The Alliance noted in its comments that the LCD and accompanying policy article do not conform to current clinical practice, lack clarity and contain conflicting language leading to confusion in wound care practice of the clinical community.
