AOPA: Insurers denying coverage based on proposed CMS rule

AOPA In Advance SmartBrief | Apr 26, 2016

Private health insurers such as UnitedHealthcare and Cigna are limiting prosthetic coverage in response to more restrictive local coverage determinations proposed by the CMS, even though their implementation has been suspended. "We predicted that the rule would, ultimately, be exploited by private health insurers," said Michael Oros, president-elect of AOPA, which also decried the lack of transparency in the review process for the changes. "There is no assurance that any stakeholders or patients would be involved in this," said AOPA Executive Director Tom Fise. HME News (04/22)
