Vacuum Erection Devices - Non-Covered by Medicare

Joint DME MAC Publication

The Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act of 2014 eliminated Medicare coverage for vacuum erection devices (VED).  Consequently, claims billed to Medicare for codes L7900 and L7902 for dates of service on or after July 1, 2015 will be denied as non-covered (no benefit).

The DME MAC VED Local Coverage Determination and Related Policy Article will be revised to reflect this change in coverage, effective for dates of service on or after July 1, 2015.
