ICD-10 Updates

CMS has published the newest additions to the NCD 20.29 list of covered indications. These are mainly for DFU , so non-pressure ulcer of whatever level WITHOUT necrosis, which was a coding issue.

Update policy effective 4/3/17, section C, non-coverage of topical oxygen, is removed from NCD20.29, HBO, to allow MAC discretion. See CR10220. NOTE: CR10220 does not impact existing edits in NCD20.29.                    

Add non-pressure chronic ulcer ICD-10 dx effective 10/1/17 to Group 2: (MCS021L, FISS 59087-59092) (there are no ‘7’ series codes)
