CMS drops two codes from Round 2021

Tuesday, July 2, 2019

WASHINGTON – CMS has removed HCPCS codes E0992 and K0056 from the product category for standard power mobility devices for Round 2021 of competitive bidding. The reason: The two codes are only applicable to the standard manual wheelchairs product category. CMS was unable to remove the two codes from DMEPOS Bidding System (DBidS) before the bid window opens on July 16, but it has removed them from the product categories files and utilization report and will remove them from the lead-item pricing calculator and HCPCS Lookup Tool on the Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor website before the bid window opens. E0992 is a manual wheelchair accessory, solid seat insert; and K0056 is a seat height less than 17 inches or equal to or greater than 21 inches for a high strength, lightweight or ultralightweight wheelchair.
