10:56 EDTMDXGMiMedx says EpiFix addded as covered product in Jurisdiction H
MiMedx Group announced that the Medicare Administrative Contractor responsible for Jurisdiction H, which has approximately five million beneficiaries in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, New Mexico, Colorado, Mississippi and Arkansas, has revised its Local Coverage Determination, LCD, for bioengineered skin substitutes in the hospital outpatient and physician office settings to include EpiFix. The revision to the LCD, entitled Bioengineered Skin Substitutes, names MiMedx's wound care allograft, EpiFix, as eligible for Medicare coverage when medically necessary and reasonable, subject to the coverage indications and limitations set forth in the LCD. The revision was published on July 10, effective for dates of service on or after June 16. Parker H. "Pete" Petit, Chairman and CEO, said, "As we discussed in our shareholder call on April 25, the contractor for Jurisdiction H previously had issued a draft consolidated LCD under which all skin substitutes with a Q-code were eligible for coverage if the case met the medically necessary and reasonable threshold. This LCD was to go into effect on March 27. On the effective date, the draft LCD was rescinded, and the contractor reverted to the previous LCD. The previous Jurisdiction H LCD covered only a few named skin substitutes and did not include coverage for EpiFix. In the update issued on July 10, the contractor has added EpiFix as a covered product. EpiFix was the only product added in that update. We are very pleased that EpiFix has been included in the revised LCD for this Medicare jurisdiction."

18:12 EDTMDXGS&P announces changes to S&P 100, 400, 500, and 600 indices
S&P Dow Jones Indices will make the following changes to the S&P 100, S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400 and S&P SmallCap 600 indices: S&P 500 constituent The Priceline Group (PCLN) will replace Baxter International (BAX) in the S&P 100, Baxalta (BXLT) will replace QEP Resources (QEP) in the S&P 500, QEP Resources will replace Itron (ITRI) in the S&P MidCap 400, and Itron will replace Arch Coal (ACI) in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Tuesday, June 30. Baxter International is spinning off Baxalta in a transaction expected to be completed on that date. Baxter International will remain in the S&P 500 following the distribution, but its post spin market capitalization will no longer make it appropriate for the S&P 100. QEP Resources, Itron and Arch Coal are all ranked near or at the bottom of their current indices. Skechers USA (SKX) will replace Rock-Tenn Co. (RKT) in the S&P MidCap 400, and MiMedx Group (MDXG) will replace Skechers USA in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Tuesday, June 30. S&P 500 constituent MeadWestvaco Corp. (MWV) is combining with Rock-Tenn in a transaction expected to be completed on or about that date. The combined company will remain in the S&P 500 and will change its name to WestRock Co. HealthEquity (HQY) will replace Zep Inc. (ZEP) in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Thursday, June 25. Private equity firm New Mountain Capital is acquiring Zep in a transaction expected to be completed on or about that date pending final approvals.
