• The PMD will be denied if the underlying condition is reversible and length of need is < 3 months.
• The KX modifier must be added to the code if all the coverage criteria noted above have been met.
• When there is an expectation of a medical necessity denial, the GA modifier must be added to the code if a valid ABN has been obtained or a GZ modifi er if a valid ABN has not been obtained.
• The GY modifier must be added to the code if the requirements related to the face-to-face examination have not been met or if the PMD is needed for outside use only.
• Upgrades that are to perform leisure or recreational activities are noncovered.
• The only products that may be billed using HCPCs K0800-K0808K0812 are those for which a written
