Anyone know how much Medicare reimburses for hinged knee braces (L 1820)? Any tips to consider when submitting? Thanks

Someone out there correct me if I am wrong, but the first thing you would need is a DME license in order to get reimbursed. Our hospital didn't have one, so we would go through a consulting orthotist or send the prescription to a medical supply company.

That's what I recommend here in MI. I don't have a DME, so I hook the patient up with someone who does - preferably an orthotist so the brace fits correctly vs a medical supply company.
