BSN medical, a leading global medical device manufacturer, has announced that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), has assigned two Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes for the JOBST Compri2 – 2-Layer-System.

The HCPCS codes allow health care providers to bill for the Compri2 padding bandage and the Compri2 high compression bandage effective immediately. The JOBST Compri2 – 2-Layer-System may be used to treat chronic venous insufficiency including venous edema and active leg ulcers, the medical firm informs in a statement.

The Compri2 non-elastic, non-woven padding bandage was assigned HCPCS code A6441, and provides added comfort during the treatment of venous edema. The Compri2 high compression bandage, which was assigned HCPCS code A6452, offers patients a knitted, woven, load resistance bandage that is easy to use and ideal for the management of venous ulcers and associated conditions.

Bruce Carroll, director of health policy and reimbursement strategy for BSN medical said, “We are extremely happy with CMS’ decision to assign two HCPCS codes to our innovative Compri2 multi-layer high compression and padding bandages for reimbursement coverage. The Compri2 – 2-Layer-System fills the gap within the assortment of treatments for edema reduction by providing an extremely effective therapeutic solution for chronic venous insufficiency. Now, with the two assigned codes for our product, a much broader patient population will benefit from successful compression therapy.,

Used by Medicare, HCPCS codes provide standardized coding for describing specific items and services provided in health care delivery and are monitored by CMS, and they are based on the Current Procedural Technology (CPT) codes developed by the American Medical Association.
