Coding for seating elevation imminent 

Coding for seating elevation imminent 

WASHINGTON – Industry stakeholders believe CMS will address coding for seat elevation systems during a scheduled public meeting Nov. 28-30. 

They believe the agency will release corresponding reimbursement in December. 

“Final implementation of coverage will be in early 2024,” NCART stated in a bulletin. “In the interim, the DME MACs will continue to determine reasonable and necessary coverage as they work to develop local coverage determinations that are in line with the national coverage determination.” 

CMS began covering power seat elevation systems earlier this year. 

Stakeholders continue to advocate for the agency to also cover for power standing systems
