List Members,

A rep recently told me that Medicare requires that any foot coded as L5987 must have a piston/shock type mechanism, and cannot rely solely on deflection of the foot/ankle component to achieve vertical shock absorption.
A call to AOPA did not confirm this information. Are any of you aware of this type of ruling by Medicare, and/or have you been given this info by one of your reps?
