The CPM devices (HCPCS code E0935) are classified as items requiring frequent and substantial servicing and are covered as DME as follows (see the Medicare National Coverage Determinations Manual.):

• Continuous passive motion devices are covered for patients who have received a total knee replacement. To qualify for coverage, use of the device must commence within 2 days following surgery. In addition, coverage is limited to that portion of the 3 week period following surgery during which the device is used in the patient's home.

Contractors make payment for each day that the device is used in the patient's home. No payment can be made for the device when the device is not used in the patient's home or once the 21 day period has elapsed. Since it is possible for a patient to receive CPM services in their home on the date that they are discharged from the hospital, this date counts as the first day of the three week limited coverage period.
