Recognizing the life-saving role of ostomy care and prosthetics in the daily lives of hundreds of thousands of people in the United States.
Calls for: (1) the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to ensure that HHS programs, policies, and practices facilitate innovation of, and access to, medical devices that restore or improve intestinal or urinary system function of people in the United States with an ostomy; and (2) ostomy products to be recognized, categorized, covered, and reimbursed in a new payment category of prosthetic supplies, consistent with Medicare's current recognition of ostomy products as prosthetics.
