Therapeutic Shoes for Diabetics - Revision of Requirement for Coding Verification Review
A revision of the medical policy on Therapeutic Shoes for Persons with Diabetes which was published in the December DMERC Supplier Manual update added a new requirement for Coding Verification Review by the SADMERC (now the DME PDAC)for shoes and inserts for claims with dates of service on or after 1/1/06. That requirement is being changed. The requirement for Coding Verification Review for therapeutic shoes (A5500) is being eliminated. The requirement for Coding Verification Review of inserts (new codes A5512 and A5513 in 2006) is being delayed and will be effective for claims with dates of service on or after July 1, 2006. A revision of the policy with a corrected statement will be published in a future Supplier Manual update.
