Get the Lowdown on Local Coverage Policies in Hyperbaric and Wound Care


In an atmosphere of changing reimbursements, it’s important to understand indications and utilization guidelines for healthcare services. The topic of wound care coding has been the subject of coverage in many publications and by many experts in the field. When providing services and billing payers, it is best to have the latest Local Coverage Policy (LCP). The challenge with LCP’s is that they are constantly changing. They require previous knowledge of Medicare rulemaking in order to interpret them correctly.

This fast-paced, high-content webinar with expert speaker Gloria Miller, expounds on everything you need to know about the new LCPs in Hyperbaric and wound care. It will also serve as an update on the latest hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) LCDs (local coverage determinations) and ICD-10 codes, with a side by side LCD comparison for wounds and HBO. It will include limitations on muscle and bone debridement and include ICD-10 code selection criteria for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
