I have posted blogs about the fact that the pricing of skin subs is continuously escalating. There are amniotic products out there now which are more than $3,000 cm2, and there is ZERO data to suggest that they are any better than amniotic products 100 times cheaper. This seems – well, insane.

Dr. Fife,

To me the root of the problem with CTP pricing is the ability of companies to set their own reimbursement rate by publishing a WAC (Wholesale Acquisition Price) of any amount they choose. There are a number of ways to fix the continuous escalation in WAC pricing, but the easiest might be to cap the Medicare reimbursement rate at some limit which applies to all products equally.
