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.
