The Durable Medical Equipment Medicare Administrative Contractors (DME MACs) have evaluated the MyoPro® upper extremity assist device and determined that it falls within the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) benefit category.  Claims for MyoPro® should be submitted using the DME miscellaneous code E1399. 

Suppliers are reminded that when submitting claims for items coded E1399, the supplier must include the following information:

  • Manufacturer name
  • Model name or number
  • Pricing information
  • Explanation of medical necessity

This information must be entered in the narrative field of an electronic claim (NTE 2300 or NTE 2400 of an electronic claim) or Item 19 of a paper claim.

This item is classified under the capped-rental payment methodology as it does not meet the requirements to be categorized as an inexpensive or routinely purchased item.
