PHOENIX, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Amnio Technology, LLC, a leading manufacturer of advanced regenerative allografts derived from human amniotic tissues, announced today award of new and unique Level II Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) reimbursement codes on behalf of its PalinGen® and ProMatrX® line of products.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) established code Q4173 for the PalinGen® Membrane and XPlus Membrane family of products, per square centimeter. Code Q4174 was established for PalinGen® Flow, SportFlow and ProMatrX® ACF cryopreserved liquids, 0.36 mg per 0.25 cc. These reimbursement codes take effect January 1, 2017.
The PalinGen® and ProMatrX® line of products are human allografts processed from healthy placental tissues. Amniotic tissue is a rich source of biologically active factors involved in tissue regeneration and wound healing with reported anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, reepithelialization, and anti-fibrotic properties. Therefore, amniotic tissue is considered to be an attractive wound biomaterial.
Ethan Minkin, Esq., MSPH, Amnio Technology CEO remarked, "These new HCPCS codes place the Amnio Technology line of products under the same Q code classification as other well-known products including Dermagraft®, Alloderm® and EpiFix®. The establishment of unique Q codes is a critical part of our reimbursement strategy, and we remain committed to facilitating clinical access for the entire line of products."
