Reimbursement Alert On MEDIHONEY Products! - 13 August 2015

Voice your concerns about proposed coverage and reimbursement Medicare Part B changes to MEDIHONEY® products.
The DME Medicare Administrative Contractors [DME MAC] are intending to make surgical dressing policy changes not based on clinical practice, notably proposing to eliminate coverage of surgical dressings with multiple components including MEDIHONEY® dressings. This coverage change is based on the relative weight of honey within the dressing, not based on the clinical merits of the dressing. We believe this makes no sense and will have dramatic negative impact on how you are able to manage your patients' wounds.
