Wheelchair seating policy revised to include Stage 1 pressure ulcers

Posted on in Billing/Reimbursement

The DME MACs announced recently that the ICD-10 diagnosis codes for stage 1 pressure ulcers have been added to the wheelchair seating policy effective retroactively to Oct. 1, 2015. This is good news as the industry made the DME MACs aware that these were missing from the original policy which was effective on Oct. 1, 2015.
