Durable Medical Equipment, Medical Supplies, and Nutritional Products Handbook : 2. Texas Medicaid (Title XIX) Home Health Services : 2.2 Services, Benefits, Limitations and Prior Authorization : 2.2.16 Osteogenic Stimulation

2.2.16
A noninvasive electrical osteogenic stimulator (procedure codes E0747 and E0748) and noninvasive ultrasound osteogenic stimulator (procedure code E0760) are benefits of Texas Medicaid for home health DME and medical supplier DME providers when provided in the home setting. An invasive electrical osteogenic stimulator (procedure code E0749) is a benefit of Texas Medicaid for freestanding and hospital-based ambulatory surgical centers when provided in the outpatient setting.
Electrical and ultrasonic osteogenic stimulator devices for the treatment of orthopedic and neurosurgical conditions are a benefit for Texas Medicaid clients when the client experiences nonunion of a fracture, requires an adjunct to spinal fusion surgery, or experiences congenital pseudarthrosis.
Nonunion is defined as a fractured bone that fails to heal completely. Diagnosis of nonunion is established when a minimum of six months has passed since the injury and the fracture site shows no progressive signs of healing for a minimum of three months and is not complicated by a synovial pseudoarthrosis. Serial radiographs must confirm that fracture healing has ceased for three months or longer before the client begins treatment with the osteogenic stimulator.
