Provider outpatient departments report service units using the ASC X12 837 institutional claim format or on the Form CMS 1450 the number of items being billed for orthotic and prosthetic devices.

For purchased DMEPOS items (excluding items requiring frequent and substantial servicing, capped rental items, and oxygen which cannot be purchased) HHAs report service units using the ASC X12 837 institutional claim format or on the Form CMS- 1450 the number of purchased items billed. For rental DME items, including oxygen equipment, HHAs report a separate line for each month billed indicating "1" on the ASC X12 837 institutional claim format or in the service units field on the Form CMS-1450.

For oxygen contents (HCPCS codes E0441, E0442, E0443, and E0444), the HHAs report the number of feet or pounds as described by the HCPCS code.
