Catching Up with Medicare Mobility Reimbursement News

August 10, 2023 – Effective Jan. 1, 2023, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updated the Medically Unlikely Edit (MUE) for HCPCS code E2394 (Power wheelchair accessory, drive wheel, excludes tire, any size, replacement only, each), from two (2) units per date of service to one (1) unit per date of service.

Most of our clients, and perhaps most suppliers in the industry, replace both drive wheels at the same time. On March 6, ACU-Serve reached out to CMS via e-mail to request that the quantity be updated from the one (1) unit per date of service to two (2) units per date of service.
