Alliance of Wound Care Stakeholders Update

01/22/2020 9:23 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The APWCA contributed to a successful effort to reverse a dangerous policy that limited ulcer debridements. Wisconsin Physician Services (WPS) is a Medicare Contractor responsible for six states. They released a Local Coverage Determination (LCD) for ulcer debridement that did not include stage II pressure ulcers or diabetic foot ulcers in its list of covered conditions. The APWCA is a proud member of the Alliance of Wound Care Stakeholders and contributed to their fight against this policy. After many letters and in-person testimony, WPS revised this LCD to include stage II pressure ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers in the list of covered conditions. Advocacy for both you and your patients is part of your APWCA member benefits!
