Both CIGNA and United Healthcare have postponed their decisions to stop accepting S-codes, preserving access to advanced autologous for some patients for the time being.
Thanks to our letters from Congress, Senate, Surgeons, Nonprofits, and Patients, CMS is open to re-evaluating the decision to sunset the S-codes.
We have hosted numerous IG live events for the breast cancer community, educating hundreds of activists about the issue at hand and what we can do to advance our mission. @CBRAlliance
We applaud CMS for ruling in favor of restoring the s-codes for DIEP flap and other advanced forms of natural reconstruction! Congratulations to all involved in this historic event!
