The Pricing, Data Analysis, and Coding (PDAC) Contractor has reviewed the product(s) listed above and has approved the listed Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code(s) for billing the four Durable Medical Equipment Medicare Administrative Contractors
(DME MACs). The PDAC Contractor provides coding assistance to manufacturers to ensure proper coding of Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS). The PDAC publishes coding decisions based on the coding guidelines established by the Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) and associated Policy Articles and any related Advisory Articles established by the DME MACs. All products submitted to the PDAC for a coding verification review are examined by coders and professionals following a formal, standardized process. Based on this review and application of DME MAC policy, the HCPCS code(s) listed below should be used when billing the DME MACs:
K1027 ORAL DEVICE/APPLIANCE USED TO REDUCE UPPER AIRWAY COLLAPSIBILITY, WITHOUT FIXED MECHANICAL HINGE, CUSTOM FABRICATED, INCLUDES FITTING AND ADJUSTMENT
If you disagree with this decision, you may request a reconsideration within 45 days of the letter's date and provide evidence to substantiate a reconsideration of PDAC's original coding determination. To request a reconsideration, complete the Reconsideration Request form located on the PDAC website at www.dmepdac.com. If your request for a reconsideration is made after
the 45-day time frame, it will require a new application and documentation to support the request.
It is the responsibility of manufacturers and distributors to notify the PDAC immediately of any changes involving their products, as listed on the Product Classification List (PCL) on the Durable Medical Equipment Coding System (DMECS). Further information for requesting updates to the PCL can be found on the PDAC website at www.dmepdac.com. It is also the responsibility of manufacturers and distributors to assure their websites and product marketing
materials accurately reflect the product reviewed by the PDAC and the coding decision assigned. An assignment of the HCPCS code(s) to product(s) is not an approval or endorsement of the product(s) by Medicare or Palmetto GBA; nor does it imply or guarantee claim reimbursement or coverage.
