This suturable BioECM becomes the third in HRT’s membrane offering, designed to give surgeons additional handling options to solve the unique application needs of various procedures.
This new product launch continues to add to the milestones achieved in 2017, where the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services approved HRT’s FastActing® membrane skin substitute for high-cost bundle payment status under its unique HCPCS code Q4163. This status allows for enhanced reimbursement at hospital outpatient and hospital-affiliated ambulatory facilities, expanding patient access to this next-generation biologic.
