Billing Ankle-Foot/Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthoses for Travelers or Snowbirds

When a claim is filed with Medicare for a DMEPOS item, including Ankle-Foot/Knee-Ankle-Foot orthoses, the beneficiary’s permanent address on file with the Social Security Administration (SSA) determines which Medicare jurisdiction should be billed. This is regardless of the jurisdiction where the brace is actually provided. More information is available on the Traveling/Snowbird Beneficiary webpage.
