The article expands on when and what Medicare considers to be covered

CGS shared guidance on billing wheelchair electronics to DME MAC Jurisdiction B and Jurisdiction C pages. Power Wheelchair Electronics Clarification, published on May 30, is a step in the right direction of providing clear coverage guidelines for Medicare, the American Association for Homecare said.

The article details coverage scenarios for electronic connections between wheelchair controllers and power wheelchair electronics (E2310, E2311), expandable controllers (E2377) and electronic harnesses (E2313) shedding light on when Medicare considers each to be covered with certain power wheelchair seating system configurations.

This clarification can be used with Medicare Advantage Plans to demonstrate what the coverage criteria is for Medicare fee for service and should be allowed for all Medicare Advantage Plans.
