Topical Oxygen Wound Therapy (TOWT)

Topical Oxygen Wound Therapy (TOWT) Continues to be Covered Until Further Notice

The July 1, 2017 coverage termination date has been rescinded. The Department will present the subject of Topical Oxygen Wound Therapy to its Evidence Based Benefit Review Advisory Committee (EBBRAC) for review and recommendation.

Pending the EBBRAC review and recommendation and until the Department's final determination regarding coverage of Topical Oxygen Wound Therapy, Medicaid fee-for-service and Medicaid Managed Care will continue to cover TOWT in accordance with the Department's existing procedures.
