Effective for claims with dates of service on or after April 1, 2011, the only products which may be billed to Medicare using code E0574 (Ultrasonic/Electronic Aerosol Generator With Small Volume Nebulizer) are those for which a written coding verification has been made by the Pricing, Data Analysis, and Coding (PDAC) contractor and that are listed in the Product Classification Matrix of the DME Coding System (DMECS) maintained on the PDAC website, https://www.dmepdac.com/dmecsapp/.

Products currently coded with E0574 which are listed on DMECS will be end dated as of December 31, 2010.

The PDAC coding verification application required for these products is the DME and Supplies application. This application is located on the PDAC website here: https://www.dmepdac.com/review/apps_check.html. If you have questions please contact the PDAC Contact Center at (877) 735-1326 during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday, or e-mail the PDAC by completing the DME PDAC Contact Form located on the PDAC website here: www.dmepdac.com.

Once products are coded by the PDAC, they will be listed in the Product Classification Matrix on DMECS.
