Regulatory Update: Navigating CMS Regulatory Changes in 2024

Rylan Smith

In the ever-changing landscape of healthcare regulations, it's important to keep your eye on the horizon. For those of us in the wound care industry, these changes aren't just bureaucratic shifts; they directly impact our ability to provide exceptional care to patients who rely on us for healing, limb preservation, and even survival. While the specific changes remain uncertain, recent events have underscored the importance of staying informed and prepared. Whether it's updates in skin substitute grafts, cellular tissue products, or reimbursement rates for hyperbaric therapy, vigilance is key.

Navigating Medicare Uncertainty

Medicare reimbursement, the lifeblood of many healthcare providers, remains a precarious tightrope. Recent flip-flops by the Centers for Medicare Services (CMS) on regulations regarding skin substitute grafts and hyperbaric therapy reimbursement serve as stark reminders of this uncertainty.
