The goal of the WOCN Society's Support of Medicare Coverage for Enterocutaneous Fistulas Public Policy Paper is to provide support and evidence that supplies are necessary for treatment of fistulas, and that reimbursement for the supplies are imperative. Currently, products are only covered for fistulas that are caused or treated by a surgical procedure. This paper is stating the importance of coverage of spontaneous fistulas, as that is not currently covered by CMS.
