We're conducting research about the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)'s prior authorization and PDAC requirements in the United States orthotics and prosthetics industry.

Background
Since 2020, prior authorization has been required by CMS for six lower limb prosthesis codes (L5856, L5857, L5858, L5973, L5980, and L5987). In June 2021, CMS announced the addition of Articulating Digits and Prosthetic Hands (L6715 and L6880). Then, in January 2022, CMS added five orthoses codes (L0648, L0650, L1832, L1833, and L1851) to the list for prior authorization and is currently implementing the requirement in a phased approach.
