There were no updates to the DMEPOS Rural ZIP code file for Quarter 1, 2023.
Note regarding coverage and payment indicators for codes in CMS’ HCPCS Update and DMEPOS Fee Schedule Files:
If specific Medicare coverage or payment indicators or values have not been established for any new HCPCS codes, this may be because a national Medicare coverage determination and/or fee schedule amounts have not yet been established for these items. This is neither an indicator of Medicare coverage or non-coverage. In these cases, until national Medicare coverage and payment guidelines have been established for these codes, the Medicare coverage and payment determinations for these items may be made based on the discretion of the Medicare contractors processing claims for these items.
The 12/19/2022 update includes corrections to the January 2023 DMEPOS_Jan Excel and CSV files.
