Information for Prescribing Motorized Wheelchairs/Powerchairs - Determining your Patients' Mobility Needs

Once you've determined from the face-to-face mobility evaluation that your patient's mobility needs would best be served with an electric wheelchair, you'll need to provide the following documentation within 45 days of your face-to-face mobility evaluation:

  • Prescription/7 Element Written Order for an electric wheelchair

  • Chart notes that detail the patient's mobility need and written summary of face-to-face evaluation

  • Once the supplier has determined the specific power mobility device that is appropriate for the patient based on the physician's order, the supplier must prepare a written document (termed a detailed product description) that lists the specific base (HCPCS code and either a narrative description of the item or the manufacturer name/model) and all options and accessories that will be separately billed. The physician must sign and date this detailed product description and the supplier must receive it prior to delivery of the electric wheelchair or electric scooter.

The written prescription / 7-Element Written Order must include:

  • Beneficiary's (patient's) name

  • Detailed description of item that is ordered

  • Date of the face-to-face examination

  • Pertinent diagnosis/conditions that relate to the need for a power wheelchair

  • Length of time the patient will need the device

  • Physician's signature

  • Date of physician's signature

 
The face-to-face examination report must address the following:

  • Patient's mobility limitation and how it interferes with the performance of activities of daily living

  • Why can't a cane or walker meet this patient's mobility needs in the home?

  • Why can't a manual wheelchair meet this patient's mobility needs in the home?

  • Why can't a mobility scooter meet this patient's mobility needs in the home?

  • Does this patient have the physical and mental abilities to operate a power wheelchair safely in the home?

  • Is the patient willing and motivated to use a power wheelchair?



The report shall provide pertinent information about the following elements, but may include other details.

  • Symptoms & related diagnoses

  • How long the condition has been present

  • History & clinical progression

  • Interventions (including medications) that have been tried and the results

  • Past use of walker, manual wheelchair, power wheelchair or mobility scooter and the results

  • Physical exam & weight

  • Impairment of strength, range of motion, sensation or coordination of arms and legs

  • Presence of abnormal tone, deformity of arms, legs or trunk

  • Neck, trunk, and pelvic posture and flexibility

  • Sitting and standing balance

  • Functional assessment - problems performing the following activities including the need to use a cane, walker or aid of another person:

    • Transferring between a bed or chair and power mobility product

    • Walking to & from bathroom, kitchen, living room, etc.

    • Distance patient is able to walk without stopping; speed, and balance

The elements that are addressed will depend on the diagnoses that are responsible for the mobility deficit. For example, for patients with COPD, heart failure or arthritis, the major emphasis will be on symptoms and history of the progression of their condition rather than on the physical examination.

Functional Assessment
Physicians shall also provide reports of pertinent laboratory tests, x-rays, and/or other diagnostic tests (e.g., pulmonary function tests, cardiac stress test, electromyogram, etc.) performed in the course of management of the patient. Although patients who qualify for coverage of a power chair may use that device outside the home, because Medicare's coverage of a wheelchair is determined solely by the patient's mobility needs within the home, the examination must clearly distinguish the patient's abilities and needs within the home from any additional needs for use outside the home. Physicians shall document the evaluation in a detailed narrative note in their charts in the format that they use for other entries. The note must clearly indicate that a major reason for the visit was a mobility evaluation.

 


***Physicians will be provided an additional payment, using code G0454, for signing/co-signing the face-to-face encounter of the PA/NP/CNS. The physician should not bill the G code when he/she conducts the face-to-face encounter. Note that the G code may only be paid to the physician one time per beneficiary per encounter, regardless of the number of covered items documented in the face-to-face encounter.
