Collagenase (Xiaflex®)

These services may or may not be covered by your HealthPartners plan. Please see your plan documents for your specific coverage information. If there is a difference between this general information and your plan documents, your plan will be used to determine your coverage.

Administrative process

Xiaflex requires prior authorization from HealthPartners Pharmacy Administration.

Xiaflex is generally covered for treating Dupuytren's contractures involving 1 or 2 joints.

Xiaflex is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with Dupuytren’s contracture with a palpable cord.

Xiaflex contains collagenase clostridium histolyticum which lyses collagen. Injection into a Dupuytren’s cord may lead to a disruption of contracted cords and improved function.

Dupuytren’s contracture is characterized by progressive fibrosis of tissue in the palms. Joint stiffness and a loss of flexibility can develop, with contractures drawing fingers into a contracted position.

If available, codes are listed below for informational purposes only, and do not guarantee member coverage or provider reimbursement. The list may not be all-inclusive.
