Comments to WPS Wound Care LCD

Alliance submitted comments to WPS on its proposed Wound Care LCD that went into effect on April 16, 2018. The Alliance noted specific, significant concerns with some of the language contained in the final LCD – including clinically incorrect statements – on requested clarity on several key areas, including:
  •  debridement coverage for chronic non pressure ulcers
  •  debridement coverage for diabetic ulcers
  • utilization parameters for traditional and disposable Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT)
