Manual offers Medicare help

For wound care professionals having a hard time keeping up with the fluid Medicare Part B guidelines, some help is available. Shield Healthcare Centers, a disposable medical products company in Valencia, CA, offers a wound care guide that focuses on navigating the Medicare maze. 

"It’s hard enough to properly care for wounds, let alone be concerned about what Medicare will and will not cover," says Michael Goldberg, Shield marketing manager. "[The manual] guides you through the often frustrating Medicare process while assuring proper treatment." 

Sections of the manual include: Nine steps to Medicare wound treatment success; algorithms; wound care definitions; Medicare chart by wound type; product references; how to fill out a Medicare prescription; and Medicare coverage guidelines.
