The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) established code Q4173 for the Amniotic®Membrane and XPlus Membrane family of products, per square centimeter. Code Q4174 was established for Amniotic® Flow cryopreserved liquid, 0.36 mg per 0.25 cc. Recently, Amniotic Flow has been receiving coverage by most insurances for joint and wound care injections.
Amniotic Fluid Injections is a powerful treatment, helping the body boost its ability to heal itself, by recruiting the body’s stem cells to repair and regenerate damaged tissue. It is administered through a single injection of Human Amniotic Fluid, AF. Developed using a proprietary process, our Amniotic Fluid Injections are convenient and versatile liquid allografts that are derived from donated human placental amniotic fluid. These safe, drug-free injections contain growth factors and other naturally occurring nutrients which encourage cellular and soft tissue regeneration and reconstruction.Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy
Amniotic® Membrane is a powerful human allograft providing wound protection and promoting healing by naturally resorbing into the wound (around 1-2 weeks). Amniotic allografts are chorion free and contain a number of invaluable elements that promote tissue repair such as collagen substrates, growth factors, cytokines, and an extracellular matrix. These tissues have anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-adhesive, and anti-fibrotic properties. Further, they can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 years. Amniotic Membrane is covered by most insurances.
The Amniotic XPlus Membrane provides greater tensile strength, shape manipulation, and slower resorption into the wound (around 4-6 weeks). Amniotic XPlus Membrane has powerful anti-adhesion capabilities that makes them an ideal protective tissue covering to prevent adhesion formation during healing, as with hernia repair, post-surgical prostate protection, and other organ wrapping. The XPlus Membrane creates an ideal environment for tissue healing and stimulates cell renewal and proliferation. XPlus Membrane is covered by most insurances.
Amniotic Flow is amniotic fluid containing cellular components such as cytokines, growth factors and extracellular matrix proteins that are naturally found in amniotic tissues. This human allograft fluid is useful in a variety of conditions that can be treated in the physicians office, and implanted with a 20-23g needle. Amniotic Flow is used to treat chronic pain, soft tissue pain, joint pain and severe wounds due to its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. Amniotic Flow is covered by most insurance providers for joint injections and wound care.
Donor tissue is recovered using one of the safest recovery techniques and sterile equipment to minimize any bioburden contamination. Amniotic tissues are procured through a network of qualified and trained recovery partners, following stringent screening and recovery protocols in a highly controlled processing environment. All tissues are processed aseptically. Communicable disease testing is performed by an FDA registered and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA Certified) laboratory. Donor blood sample is taken prior to or at the time of recovery and tested for HBsAg, HBcAb, HCVAb, HIV1/2 Ab, HCV NAT, HIV NAT, HBV NAT, RPR/STS, WNV, and HTLV I/II. Allografts are subjected to stringent USP testing prior to release
