2023 Together - NA319 - Cost Containment Strategies for General and Advanced Wound Care in LTC/SNF
Cost containment is becoming more important with the many challenges LTC/SNF are facing around regulations, reimbursements and price increases across all categories. Medicare Part B providers can help mitigate costs that these facilities would otherwise have to absorb. Many dressings and treatments are covered by insurance based on the type and stage of wounds. Partnering with a provider can not only decrease spend but help nursing provide better care and optimize patient outcomes.
