Look at it this way.
If the stim unit implanted within our bodies was not Durable Medical Equipment,
Medicare would never have authorized payment for even one
Kinda like they authorized and paid
because of my disability classification
for the cervical fusion I experienced
Others here have reported Medicare paid for SCS.
it seems to reason the primary system
is classified as part of the DME universe.
So, as Jean Luc Picard would say to Number One
I'll have one with self programming on top please.
I think the first control is thrown in as part of the package
since without its delivery
the DME would be just so much
