💉The Status for MIGS Procedures.
Five Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) have reversed their decision to implement final local coverage determinations (LCDs) for micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) on January 29, 2024. These determinations, which included procedures related to the OMNI Surgical System by Sight Sciences, were initially considered investigational for glaucoma treatment in adults. This change ensures that there will be no alteration to the existing Medicare coverage for MIGS producers using the OMNI Surgical System. The decision comes after a quiet movement to reduce reimbursements and coverage for MIGS procedures, which began in the spring of 2023.
