TOA Comments on Medicare’s Back and Knee Brace Proposal

The Texas Orthopaedic Association (TOA) submitted feedback on December 17, 2018 that expresses concern regarding the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposal to add back and knee braces to Medicare’s new round of competitive bidding.

TOA expressed concern that this could limit the number of physicians who would be able to provide these braces, and this could compromise the coordinated care model.

TOA members can find the response on TOA’s website.
