Anyone familiar with billing DME? L0113 says the service type is lump sum purchase of dme, prosthetics, orthotics, but E0480 has rental of dme.

L0113 Cervical Orthotic This is a tool that will be used during a passive exercise to help restore to the proper lordosis in the patient's cervical spine. The radiographic images clearly show the patient has a complete loss in the normal cervical lordosis.

E0480 Percussion Massage Instrument Due to facetal irritation at various segments of the cervical spine patient's paraspinal musculature is in a state of spasm (protection). The speed of the percussion instrument allows for stimulation at speeds beyond the normal physiological reflex arch that prevents relaxation. The use of this instrument will accelerate the patient's healing and return to functional ROM.
