Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) Continued Coverage
For NPWT to continue, a licensed medical professional must do the following: on a regular basis, directly assess the wound(s) being treated with the NPWT pump and supervise or directly perform the NPWT dressing changes. And on at least a monthly basis, document changes in the ulcer’s dimensions and characteristics. This information can be found in the NPWT Local Coverage Determination (LCD) L33821 on the Active LCDs page.
