MiMedx Announces Its Support Of New CMS Packaging Payment Policy For Skin Substitutes
Date:11/29/2013

MARIETTA, Ga., Nov. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MiMedx Group, Inc.  (NASDAQ: MDXG), an integrated developer, manufacturer and marketer of patent protected regenerative biomaterials and bioimplants processed from human amniotic membrane, announced today that the Company applauds the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) new methodology for the reimbursement of skin substitutes in the hospital outpatient setting, which was released on November 27, 2013.  Under the new Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) Final Rule, CMS will package the reimbursement for certain products used in advanced wound care with the related surgical procedure into a two-tier payment system. Additionally, the MiMedx allograft, EpiFix®, was extended pass-through status through 2014, which means it will retain the current payment methodology for one more year. CMS states that pass-through payments are intended to facilitate the adoption of certain new products for a period of at least two, but not more than three years.  EpiFix® will retain this status for 2014, which will be the third and final year. 

"We think that CMS has made very rational decisions that balance all the variables to protect their Medicare patients, manufacturers and our tax dollars. These changes were absolutely necessary to correct cost disparities and graft wastage in advanced wound care," said Parker H. Petit, Chairman and CEO."MiMedx has been an advocate of these changes and has lobbied Congress to support CMS in this initiative. We have spent considerable time with congressional members explaining to them the excessive wastage that has transpired in this area of healthcare.  We believe this new two-tier reimbursement policy will reduce excessive spending and broaden patient access to advanced wound care, which will benefit Medicare recipients. We applaud CMS for making this policy change." <
