CMS Removes Two HCPCS codes from Round 2021
CMS Removes Two HCPCS Codes from the Standard Power Mobility Devices Product Category
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has removed Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes E0992 and K0056 from the standard power mobility devices product category as they are only applicable to the standard manual wheelchairs product category. Due to time constraints with the opening of the bid window on July 16, 2019, the two codes are unable to be removed from the Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Bidding System, DBidS. However, the codes have been removed from the Product Categories files and Utilization Report and will be removed from the Lead Item Pricing Calculator and HCPCS Lookup tool on the Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) website before the bid window opens.
E0992: Manual Wheelchair Accessory, Solid Seat Insert
K0056: Seat Height Less Than 17" Or Equal To Or Greater Than 21" For A High Strength, Lightweight, Or Ultralightweight Wheelchair
