The changes are effective January 1, 2014. Please keep in mind, the appearance of a HCPCS code is not an indication of coverage by the DME MAC.
  • The listing of HCPCS Codes with description/verbiage changes that will take effect January 01, 2014 is as follows:

  • LG NOTE: the L4396 code covers the LEEDer KYDEX Pro Ankle Foot Orthosis boots. It’s important to realize LEEDer uses a true Thermoplastic which precisely and easily fits the code specification: “adjustable for fit, positioning” in the field. The cheap polypropylene boots do not fit the code. Always ask if the boot Orthosis is KYDEX: a true thermoplastic. BTW: KYDEX self-extinguishes which is another reason KYDEX is preferred for medical settings. Don’t miss out on the Safety and Security of KYDEX.
