CMS issues reimbursement policy for skin substitutes

Advanced Tissue SmartBrief | Nov 19, 2014

The CMS finalized a proposal to classify skin substitutes as surgical supplies and assign them to either a high-cost or low-cost reimbursement group using weighted average mean unit cost instead of average sales price, and set the threshold at $27 per square centimeter. New skin substitutes that are demonstrably better than current wound treatments can qualify to receive pass-through payments. Mondaq (free registration) (11/18)
