Wound dressings: Indications and recommended uses - April 2011
Certain chronic or acute wound types qualify for the reimbursement of dressings included in the list of products and services qualifying for reimbursement (LPPR).
These have been assessed by the Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS) National Committee for the Evaluation of Medical Devices and Health Technologies (CNEDiMTS). Following this report, the classification of reimbursable dressings was
amended (order dated 16 July 2010, published in the Official Journal dated 7August 2010).
The use of the various dressings listed in this classification, as amended by the HAS recommendations, is summarised here to help healthcare professionals prescribe the most suitable dressings for wound care.
