The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released a modification to the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code set.

CMS has reinstated codes L3660 “SHOULDER ORTHOSIS, FIGURE OF EIGHT DESIGN ABDUCTION RESTRAINER, CANVAS AND WEBBING, PREFABRICATED, INCLUDES FITTING AND ADJUSTMENT”; L3670 “SHOULDER ORTHOSIS, ACROMIO/CLAVICULAR (CANVAS AND WEBBING TYPE), PREFABRICATED, INCLUDES FITTING AND ADJUSTMENT”; and L3675 “SHOULDER ORTHOSIS, VEST TYPE ABDUCTION RESTRAINER, CANVAS WEBBING TYPE OR EQUAL, PREFABRICATED INCLUDES FITTING AND ADJUSTMENT” with the original language.  In making this change, the CY 2011 HCPCS Annual Tape will no longer reflect a termination date of 12/31/10 for these codes.  This change has been posted to the 2011 HCPCS Corrections document located on the HCPCS web page at http://www.cms.hhs.gov/HCPCSReleaseCodeSets/ANHCPCS/list.asp
