CMS Proposes Coverage of Supervised Exercise Therapy for Symptomatic PAD
Last week, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a proposed decision memo for supervised exercise therapy for patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease.
SCAI representatives have been working with stakeholders from the American Hospital Association, American College of Cardiology, American College of Radiology and the Society of Interventional Radiology to push this recommendation forward. The group previously presented a coordinated presentation at the
July 2015 MEDCAC meeting
that examined lower extremity revascularization procedures. SCAI will now work with stakeholders to voice strong support for the proposed National Coverage Determination.
