Pricing Provides AmnioWrap2TM Reimbursement in All MAC Regions
POMPANO BEACH, FLORIDA, December 14, 2023 – BioStem Technologies Inc. (OTC: BSEM), a leading regenerative medicine company focused on the development, manufacture, and commercialization of placental derived biologics for advanced wound care, announced that the Center for Medicare Services (CMS) has established national pricing for its product, AmnioWrap2TM, in all Medicare Administrative Contractors (MAC) regions. This pricing change will be effective starting Jan 1, 2024. BioStem exclusively commercializes AmnioWrap2TM through Venture Medical LLC, an innovative solutions provider in the U.S. wound care market with an extensive wound care-focused team.
Jason Matuszewski, CEO of BioStem Technologies Inc., expressed the significance of this achievement, highlighting the benefit it brings to Medicare patients across the United States. “This change means that AmnioWrap2TM (AW2) can now be offered to all Medicare providers throughout the country. BioStem Technologies is taking the lead in wound care innovation, leveraging our distinctive BioRetain® process. This proprietary manufacturing approach ensures the retention of essential structural components, growth factors, and anti-inflammatory cytokines inherent in placental tissue. It’s not just a process; it’s a commitment to excellence. By preserving these critical elements, we empower healthcare providers and Medicare beneficiaries with a validated, reimbursable therapeutic choice meticulously designed for addressing non-healing wounds. This is more than a breakthrough; it’s a transformative step towards reshaping the landscape of patient care and we expect this expansion in availability will increase adoption and lead to better patient outcomes.”
John Schroeder, President of Venture Medical LLC, stated, “The national ASP publication of AmnioWrap2TM knocks down barriers that will provide healthcare professionals and their patients with the opportunity to use AmnioWrap2TM, a superior wound care product for certain applications. We are eager to provide more clinical results through providers showcasing their results, publishing whitepapers, and supporting formal clinical studies in the coming months, which we believe will further separate the BioRetain® process and its resultant products like AW2 from the other products on the market. We are confident that the product benefits will quickly translate to broad product adoption throughout the US.”
Available by prescription through a healthcare provider in all 50 states, AmnioWrap2TM offers patients who are experiencing non-healing wounds an advanced treatment option that acts as a protective barrier or covering to provide an optimal environment for wound healing and closure.
