vaginal dilators are not covered by most insurance...you have to use an unlisted code to bill. we have the patient pay out of pocket and pursue reimbursement from their insurance on their own

I started a thread a few weeks ago re: coverage by Medicare. Is this a
Medicare patient?

Same song second verse

There is not a code for vaginal dilators. Make the patient pay up front
or send them to the nearest Sex Shop and let them buy their own.

We are ordering vaginal dilators for a patient and I cannot seem to find a cpt code for them.

Has anyone billed for these? Does insurance pay for these?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Yes, you can get them paid for - but they are considered DME

I learned to avoid this by sending folks to Chrisities Toybox where they can
buy serial sized devices at a fraction of the cost of medical vaginal
dilators. I have also had pts use tapered candles.

Thanks. I'll do that.

We told pt. Medicare wouldn't pay and pt paid. Now patient calls and wants
claim sent to Medicare so we can send to her second ins. Then I got to
doubting myself telling her Medicare wouldn't pay.

If Medicare doesn't pay, should it fall into pt responsibility? I just hate
to file it with Medicare and then have to write it off and refund
patient.....
