PPMA Investigating Denials on Wound Care DMEs and Home Health Care Privileges: After the first of the year, PPMA received numerous complaints from members’ who were being denied when prescribing DME supplies for diabetic wound care and the ability to refer patients for home health care.This denial of wound care supplies, as well as home health services certifications, made by the DPM arises out of the term "physician," and PPMA is preparing for a meeting with the Department to discuss the negative impact. PPMA Members please contact PPMA with examples of how this policy is affecting your patients’ condition and the cost to the Department. Call 1-800-841-3668, x211, or Fax them to 717-761-4091.  READ ENTIRE ARTICLE
