Maternity Support Garments
Products that are designed to provide support for the abdomen during pregnancy do not meet the definition of a brace. These products are coded using A9270 (noncovered item or service). L codes for orthoses must not be used for these items. If a manufacturer or supplier has a question about the correct coding of a specific product, they should contact the SADMERC for a coding determination.
