The Coalition spoke at the First Coast Service Option and Novitas public meetings and urged the Medicare Administrative Contractors to pull the problematic draft LCDs and LCAs on Skin Substitutes for the Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers and Venous Leg Ulcers and work with stakeholders and the CAC to craft a more accurate and well balanced policy. "Clinical evidence continues to be omitted from this policy review," the placement of 40+ products from the covered to non-covered group is not supported by evidence or a reason for the movement, and the policy "continues to be fraught with clinical inaccuracies that ultimately will be detrimental to patient care," the Coalition told CMS.
