Continuous Passive Motion Machines (CPM's) are a covered benefit for most insurance companies under HCPCS code E0935 (knee) or E0936 (other than knee) but there are a few exceptions, typically diagnosis related. If your insurance company does not cover the rental of the CPM Machine, we charge a $350 flat fee for up to 21 days and $15 per day after the initial 21 day rental.
Knee CPM Machines are most often prescribed after a Total Knee Replacement to help restore range of motion, prevent scar tissue and help reduce swelling. Other indications for the use of a Knee CPM are Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) repair, Microfracture surgery, Genzyme Carticel® procedures, DeNovo® NT Natural Tissue Graft, Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) and Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF) of intra-articular bone fractures, to name a few.
Elbow CPM's are indicated for the treatment of injuries and diseases of the elbow that limit movement of the joint. Post-operative treatment using this device provides an effective deterrent to stiffness and loss of range of motion.Indications include the following: Surgical releases, Synovectomies, Arthroplasty, Open reduction and internal fixation of intra-articular fractures, Contusions, Flexor-extensor muscle repairs and Burns.
Knee Walkers are a covered benefit for most insurance companies under HCPCS code E0118 but there are a few exceptions (most notably Medicare). If your insurance company does not cover the rental of the Knee Walker we charge $4 per day.
