Myomo announces receipt of two Medicare codes
Myomo announces that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has published two new codes pursuant to the company's application for Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System "L" codes. Myomo had filed its application in December 2017 to have CMS establish two new Level II HCPCS codes and received a favorable preliminary decision in May. The codes cover MyoPro Motion E and W and MyoPro Motion G correspondingly. The codes become effective January 1, 2019. The assignment of unique L-codes, if followed by appropriate coverage and payment terms, would offer greater access to MyoPro for Medicare beneficiaries. Myomo Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brandon Green said, "The MyoPro has already helped so many patients with neurological/neuromuscular injury and illness by supporting their weakened arms, restoring control over their range of motion, reducing their healthcare costs, and giving them back their independence. It is important for clinically qualified Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries to have access to this technology too."
