The Coalition submitted comments to Cigna Government Services (CGS) on draft Local Coverage Determination (LCD) for Application of Skin Substitute for Wounds, of Lower Extremities (DL36690), stating that CGS has abandoned the widely accepted CTP nomenclature despite being the first company to recognize it. Specifically, CGS and has reverted to using the scientifically incorrect term “skin-substitutes” in their LCD title language. The Coalition believes that this problematic language causes confusion among the clinical community, resulting in clinical inaccuracies and coverage guidance issues.
