Prosthetic Devices (Rev. 1, 10-01-03)

Section 1834(h)(1)(G) of the Act, "Replacement of Prosthetic Devices and Parts," refers to prosthetic devices that are artificial limbs. Section 1861(s) of the Act, which defines "medical and other health services," does not define artificial limbs as "prosthetic devices" (§1861(s)(8)). Rather, artificial limbs are included in the §1861(s)(9) category, "orthotics and prosthetics." When discussing replacement, these instructions will use the term "prosthetic device" as intended by §1834(h)(1)(G), i.e., artificial limbs.
