Grandafthering K level

Ingvar Leskovar

Not so long ago, someone mentioned to me that Medicare is
grandfathering K-leveled patients, once established.
Is there any merit to this? I have quite a few active amputees that
are legit K-3s with Medicare, but every time I have to re-establish
their K-level. System replacements or something new.
It’d have been huge help, if true, as it saves a ton of time – and
allows to help patient faster.
I am not aware of any LCDs from Medicare about that though.

Anyone? I mean – I know our opinions. But do we have LCD or something
else for this?

Thank you
