HCPCS Codes (Round 1 Recompete only)

Effective January 1, 2014, the Round 1 Recompete Single Payment Amount file has been updated to replace HCPCS code, E0731NU, with HCPCS code, E0731KG. This change allows Medicare to accurately process and pay HCPCS code E0731 (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (Tens) Device, Four Or More Leads, For Multiple Nerve Stimulation) according to competitive bidding payment rules when used in conjunction with a competitively bid base unit, such as TENS.
