Evaluation of orthotic insoles or people with diabetes who are at-risk of first ulceration

Question: What is the L-code for the XTERN Foot Drop AFO? 

Kevin's Answer: We have PDAC Validation for L-1951. However, if you're billing a non-medicare conforming policy, I recommend you add L-2820, on top of L-1951. In addition, the Ankle Stabilization strap for correcting hindfoot varus or valgus is L-2270.
