Received a message from my office today saying that Humana managed medicare plans will no longer cover some wound care supplies, such as wound cleanser, skin prep, etc.
Is this something new? Evidently a medical supply company rep told our office this.
As far as I knew, wound care supplies were supposed to be provided by the home health agency providing care for Medicare patients and thought this would roll over to the Medicare Managed plans, such as Humana, Peoples, etc.
Our office is going to tell patients they will have to pay for certain wound care supplies out of pocket!
Anyone with the 411 on this? Thanks
