For those of you offering multi-function ventilators, CMS assigned a new HCPCS for the two-function VOCSN VC and VC Pro units. Suppliers should use E0468 for dates of service on or after April 1, 2024. The reimbursement rates range between $1,200 and $2,200, depending on the beneficiary’s home state.

Fortunately, older orders that specify two-function units are still valid. Suppliers do not need to obtain new physician orders to bill with the new code.

Medicare still requires suppliers to use miscellaneous HCPCS E1399 with a narrative that contains product and pricing details for dates of service before April 1.
