CMS announces next Open Door Forum about prosthesis template

CMS will host another Special Open Door Forum on the Suggested Electronic Clinical Template for Lower Limb Prostheses on Sept. 11 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.

CMS is hosting a series of forums to explore the development of an electronic clinical template that will assist providers with data collection and medical documentation, as well as the electronic submission of medical documentation. The template will describe the clinical elements that CMS believes would be useful in supporting the documentation requirements for coverage of lower limb prostheses. CMS will work with the Health and Human Services Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT and the electronic Determination of Coverage workgroup, which is focused on developing template standards.

The proposed clinical template can be viewed here.
