Thuasne USA’s Rebel Reliever OA knee brace and Rebel Series ligament/ACL knee brace are a standout in the industry. With a three-measurement custom fit fabrication process, the braces are giving patients the support and protection they need with help from an expert team of technicians and in-house clinicians
That’s why Thuasne USA is proud to announce the Rebel Reliever and Rebel Series were recently awarded an L1845 Medicare billing code. The determination was made in advance of the Round 2021 DMEPOS Competitive Billing Program taking effect January 1st, 2021.
With the goal of the DMEPOS CBP program to reduce beneficiary out-of-pocket expenses, saving the Medicare program money while ensuring patient access to quality items and services, the Rebel Reliever and Rebel Series L1845 determination is a prime example of policy in action.
Thuasne USA VP of Fabrication, Kurt Townson, is pleased with the results.
“It’s a huge victory for Thuasne USA. This approval validates the level of dedication and commitment our highly skilled technicians possess evaluating anthropometrics, deflecting and bending metal frames; producing patient-specific devices that meet stringent standards for custom fit language. The Rebel Reliever and Rebel Series are industry leaders and with an L1845 code, we are excited for the future of our team and the overall health of the patients we serve.”
