    Hello everyone,

    I work for a well known wound care physican group. The issue Im having is that all of our claims are being denied in New jersey and Florida. I know OIG has put Debridements on the rador. In Florida , they are telling us that we need to change surgical debridement to maintence debridement. when this is done they denied the maintence debridement .

    I need feed back to find out if this happen across the board

    I'm not seeing that here in Michigan, but I don't have anything back for 2009 yet either. I will watch for it.
