Non-Spinal Electrical Osteogenesis Stimulator Coverage Criteria
For a non-spinal electrical osteogenesis stimulator (E0747) to be covered, one of the following criteria must be met. A nonunion of a long bone fracture defined as radiographic evidence that fracture healing has ceased for three or more months prior to starting treatment with the osteogenesis stimulator, there is a failed fusion of a joint other than in the spine where a minimum of nine months has elapsed since the last surgery, or there is congenital pseudarthrosis. Additional information on other types of osteogenesis stimulators can be found in the Local Coverage Determination (LCD) L33796.
