The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will host another Suggested Electronic Clinical Template for Lower Limb Prosthesis Open Door Forum (ODF) call on September 11, 2013, from 4-5 p.m. ET.
CMS is hosting a series of Special ODF calls to allow physicians, prosthetists, and other interested parties to provide feedback on the development of a Lower Limb Prosthesis Electronic Template for possible nationwide use. CMS said the template will assist physicians with documenting the physician notes that substantiate the need for a lower-limb prosthesis and may also facilitate the electronic submission of medical documentation. At the conclusion of the ODF calls, CMS said it plans to forward the resulting list of clinical elements to the electronic Determination of Coverage (eDoC) workgroup, which is focused on giving practitioners access to payer-approved tools.
