The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has added 31 items and deleted 5 items on the Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, & Supplies (DMEPOS) Master List. Additionally, effective April 13, 2022, CMS is selecting items beyond Power Mobility Devices (PMDs) that require a face-to-face encounter and written order prior to delivery as a condition of payment.
There are seven non-PMD items that require a face-to-face encounter and written order prior to delivery: six orthoses and one osteogenesis stimulator. 46 PMDs are on the list as dictated by statute. Therefore, as of April 13, 2022, a total of 53 items require both a face-to-face encounter and written order prior to delivery.
