Human Regenerative Technologies, LLC (HRT®), a leading regenerative biologics processor of placental tissues is pleased to announce the Center for Medicare and Medicaid has granted high-cost reimbursement status for wound care amniotic membrane skin substitutes under Q4163. This status allows for enhanced reimbursement at ambulatory and hospital outpatient facilities, expanding patient access to this next-generation biologic.

High-cost status was granted November 1st 2016, and will go into effect January 1st 2017.
