S. 1253 would modify Medicare coverage and payment rules for negative pressure wound therapy equipment that includes a disposable pump. CBO estimates that enacting S. 1253 would reduce direct spending by about $21 million over the 2016-2025 period. Pay-as-you-go procedures apply because enacting the legislation would affect direct spending. Enacting the legislation would not affect revenues.
S. 1253 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
