Proposed Rule Establishes Payment Provisions for Prosthetics, Custom Orthotics
CHA seeks member input to inform comment letter, due March 13

CHA seeks member input on a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed rule specifying necessary qualifications practitioners must meet to furnish and fabricate prosthetics and custom-fabricated orthotics. The rule would also address the qualifications and accreditation requirements suppliers must meet in order to fabricate and bill for the same devices. In addition, the rule sets forth a time frame by which qualified practitioners and suppliers must meet the rule’s requirements. CHA is developing its comment letter and seeks input from members on how the provisions in this proposed rule would impact their operations. Comments and questions should be directed to Megan Howard, CHA senior policy analyst, at mhoward@calhospital.org.
