Durable Medical Equipment (DME)
The Colorado Medical Assistance Program covers Supplies and Durable Medical Equipment (DME). DME is defined as equipment that can withstand repeated use and that generally would be of no value to the client in the absence of a disability, illness, or injury. The DME manual gives a summary of the covered DME benefits. The definitive list of covered diagnosis and procedure codes is located in the Supply Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Codes provided in this manual, which the Colorado Medical Assistance Program updates and makes available to the public annually. To find the manual go to colorado.gov/hcpf--> Provider Services-->Billing Manuals-->Colorado 1500-->Durable Medical Equipment (DME) & Supplies.
The Benefits Collaborative serves as the Department's formal coverage standard development process.
