Effective for dates of service on or after February 4, 2011, HCPCS code E0571 (Aerosol compressor, battery powered, for use with small volume nebulizer) will be invalid for claim submission to the Jurisdiction B DME MAC. Suppliers providing battery-powered aerosol compressors should bill existing HCPCS code E0570 (Nebulizer, with compressor).

For dates of service prior to February 4, 2011, claims for code E0571 will continue to have LCA applied. Claims with dates of services on or after February 4, 2011 will be rejected as invalid coding.
