AAH backs NCART on power seat elevation

WASHINGTON – AAHomecare has submitted comments to CMS supporting NCART’s recommendations for coding, coverage and payment regulations for power seat elevation systems. The recommendations, provided during a Nov. 30 virtual public meeting, include:  

  • Adopting the code description proposed in the NCART code application. 

  • Recognizing power seat elevation as a stand-alone system, the same as power tilt and/or power recline, and not merely an add on component. 

  • Requiring any product that meets the description of power seat elevation to possess clinically relevant minimum performance characteristics. 

  • Reconsidering the need for a separate HCPCS code for heavy-duty power seat elevation. 

“AAHomecare is proud to stand alongside NCART and other industry leaders who are working toward finally securing appropriate coverage and payment for power seat elevation,” the association stated in a bulletin. “We also appreciate the contributions of the ITEM Coalition, the Clinician Task Force and other advocacy groups who have provided input and support in securing coverage for this enabling technology.”
