Oakland, CA – The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) recently posted an order adjusting the Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies (DMEPOS) section of the Official Medical Fee Schedule to conform to the Quarter 2, 2023, change in the Medicare payment system as required by Labor Code section 5307.1.
The order, which is effective for services on or after April 1, 2023, adopts the Medicare revised DMEPOS file and the updated rural ZIP code file.
There were no Medicare changes to the file for the parenteral/enteral nutrition file; therefore the annual update remains in effect for those products.
The order adopting the adjustment can be found on the DWC’s DMEPOS fee schedule web page.
