Cogentix Medical, Inc., a global medical device company focused on providing the Urology, Uro/Gyn and Gynecology markets with innovative and proprietary products, recently announced that Cahaba Government Benefit Administrators, LLC has modified their policy for Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) delivered via Cogentix Medical’s Urgent® PC Neuromodulation System to allow for ongoing maintenance treatments for an indefinite period of time.
“This policy update further reinforces the medical necessity of Urgent PC as a long-term solution for patients suffering with overactive bladder symptoms,” said Darin Hammers, President and CEO. “Additionally, the policy change to indefinite coverage allows the patient and physician to decide whether to continue ongoing treatment with Urgent PC to sustain their symptomatic improvements.”
Urgent PC is a recommended third line treatment within the OAB treatment guidelines for patients who have not responded or cannot tolerate behavioral intervention and pharmacologic agents. Urgent PC patients receive an initial series of 12 treatments to determine optimal response after which most patients need a treatment about every month to keep their symptoms under control.
Since 2014, all Medicare beneficiaries have had access to Urgent PC therapy. Currently all Medicare Contractors cover PTNS maintenance therapy for at least two years. Cahaba is the fourth Medicare Contractor to cover Urgent PC maintenance treatments for an indefinite period of time.
