WASHINGTON – The AAHomecare Medical Supplies Council has launched the Ostomy & Urologicals Work Group to address issues arising with UnitedHealthcare. The council will also create educational resources for regulators and payers on the importance of these products and how low reimbursement rates create access issues. The council’s Woundcare Work Group is developing resources to educate referral sources and suppliers on requirements for surgical dressings and Part B billing. The Incontinence Work Group, which recently developed a white paper, is planning strategic outreach to key states and payers regarding the importance of using quality products and adequate reimbursement to achieving better patient outcomes, overall cost savings and improved care.
