The Coalition submitted comments to CMS on the Interim Final Rule for the Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment Systems, CMS-1656-IFC. The Coalition states that under this payment model, hospitals would lose the ability to provide cellular/ tissue based products (CTPs) and Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) products to patients. The Coalition recommends that CMS reconsider their choice to adopt the Medicare Physicians Fee Schedule (MPFS) so that hospitals may have the ability to provide NPWT and CTP products.
