Agreed, but CMS has the attitude that they can't tell doctors what to do. And insurance companies, that reimburse for MTWA, don't push its use. All the insurance companies have done is lead the horse to the water, not make the horse drink the water.
True, they can't tell docs what to do, however, they can determine that they won't pay for procedures/devices, without the pre-qualifications they determine are necessary before payment will be made. MTWA can certainly be one of these pre-qualifications.
