AOPA shared with you the DME MACs proposal for substantial modifications to the Local Coverage Determination and Policy Article applicable to Medicare reimbursement for lower extremity prosthetics. AOPA reviewed the policy and provided a Comprehensive Analysis, accompanied by an Executive Summary (available here).
We now have a simple way for AOPA members AND prosthetic patients to take action at www.AOPAvotes.org. We have provided two prewritten letters – one from practitioners and one from patients to send the DME MACs (with a copy going to your representatives in Congress).
Visit www.AOPAvotes.org to send a letter and share with all your patients. The comment period ends August 31, 2015 and you can also send your customized comments to DMAC_Draft_LCD_Comments@anthem.com and make sure to reference “LCD Draft: Lower Limb Policy” in the subject line.
