Covered Services

Codes: E0621: Sling or seat, patient lift, canvas or nylon. E0630, E0635, E0636, E0639: patient lifts. E0627, E0629: seat lift mechanisms.

Hydraulic or mechanical patient lifts described by E0630 are covered for recipients who meet the following criteria:

  • The recipient requires help from another person to transfer between a wheelchair, bed, commode, or other surfaces in the home
  • The recipient cannot be safely transferred without a lift due to the recipient’s medical condition or the caregiver’s limitations
  • The lift is documented as fitting in all necessary parts of the recipient’s home

Multi-positional patient support systems with integrated lift described by E0636, and moveable patient lifts described by E0639 are covered for recipients who meet criteria for a patient lift and whose unique medical needs cannot be met with a less costly lift.

Electric patient lifts described by E0635 are covered for recipients who meet criteria for a hydraulic or mechanical lift and who meet one of the following criteria:

  • The recipient has a medical condition that prevents safe transfer using a hydraulic or mechanical lift
  • The primary caretaker is unable to operate a hydraulic or mechanical lift but can operate an electric lift and can perform all necessary cares

Seat lift mechanisms are covered for recipients who meet all of the following criteria:

  • The recipient has arthritis of the hip or knee, neuromuscular disease or another medical condition that affects his or her strength or mobility
  • The recipient is unable to stand up from a regular armchair at home
  • Once standing, the recipient has the ability to ambulate independently or with a properly fitted walker or cane

Noncovered Services

Non-electric seat lift mechanisms that operate by spring release mechanism are not covered because they are not the community standard of care and pose a risk to recipients with limited strength. Although a seat lift mechanism may be covered, the chair for which the mechanism is intended is not covered because it is furniture rather than medical equipment.

The following items are not covered because they are home or vehicle modifications, not durable medical equipment:

  • Vehicle lifts
  • Platform lifts
  • Stair lifts
  • Elevators
  • Wheelchair lifts
  • Non-portable ramps
  • Ceiling lifts
