Durable Medical Equipment

Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Limitations - The list of codes is provided for reference purposes only and may not be all inclusive. Listing of a code does not imply that the service described by the code is a covered or non-covered health service. Please refer to the Fee Schedule for coverage. These service unit limitations serve as guidance for all Vermont Medicaid members (regardless of ACO attribution status) with the expectation that providers document medical necessity to justify services or items provided in excess of these limitations. Medically Unlikely Edits (MUEs) define the maximum units of service for each HCPCS/CPT code that a provider would report under most circumstances for a single patient on a single date of service. Units that exceed MUEs will be denied.
