Qualifying for Continued Coverage of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT)

For qualifying wounds to receive continued coverage, a licensed clinician must:

  • Directly assess the wound(s) being treated with the negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) pump on a regular basis; and
  • Perform or supervise the dressing changes; and
  • At least monthly, document changes in the ulcer's dimensions and characteristics.

The NPWT webpage has this information, documentation resources, the LCD and Policy Article, and useful tools.
