Procedure code E1399 will be reimbursed with a maximum fee of $1,230.00 or MSRP less 18 percent, which ever is the lesser cost. Supplies to be used with client owned humidification units may be considered for purchase and must be billed with the appropriate HCPCS code for each item requested. Documentation of medical necessity must be included with submission of the request.
