Adjustments to the DMEPOS section of the official medical fee schedule to conform to changes in the Medicare payment system are posted on the DWC Web site
The Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) has posted an order adjusting the durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supplies (DMEPOS) section of the official medical fee schedule (OMFS) to conform to changes in the Medicare payment system as required by Labor Code section 5307.1. After the administrative director adopted the Jan. 1, 2010 DMEPOS fee schedule update, Medicare adopted a new fee schedule file which revises two codes, E1405 and E1406. The update includes all changes adopted in the Dec. 2, 2009 order and the two code revisions. The order is effective for services on or after Jan. 1, 2010. The order can be found at http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/OMFS9904.htm#3.
