What is PDAC?
PDAC, or the Pricing, Data Analysis and Coding, is the US contractor that maintains the Durable Medical Equipment Coding System (DMECS). DMECS is an official source for Medicare Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies (DMEPOS) product code verification and assignment.
Coding verification is a voluntary process (unless mandated by DME Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) policy) that allows manufacturers/distributors to request a coding decision on a DMEPOS item. It is the responsibility of the PDAC to review DMEPOS products to determine the appropriate HCPCS code for Medicare billing.
New L-Code L6895: The COVVI Glove
The COVVI Glove is made from silicone with a soft-touch coating and boasts thicker integrated fingertip pads, which improves the life of the glove. The index finger is also coated to allow the user to use touch screens, which many other prosthetic hands are still not compatible with, and in some cases require a wand to even type on a normal keyboard.
At every stage of design, we’ve thought about how prosthetics need to respond to modern day life, so we ensured that the COVVI Hand was not only compatible with these new technologies, but could actually be used to operate them at an acceptable level.
