Myomo, Inc. (NYSE American: MYO) ("Myomo" or the "Company"), a wearable medical robotics company that offers increased functionality for those suffering from neurological disorders and upper-limb paralysis, today announced that on February 29, 2024, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) posted the final Medicare Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) fee schedule payment rates for the MyoPro®.

The final average fee schedule rates for the two Healthcare Common Procedures System (HCPCS) codes describing the MyoPro, L8701, our Motion W device, and L8702, our Motion G device, are $33,480.90 and $65,871.74, respectively, and can be found here beginning on page 67. On January 1, 2024, the MyoPro was officially classified in the brace benefit category, which enables reimbursement on a lump sum basis. These final fees become effective on April 1, 2024.

"We're extremely gratified to have reached a successful conclusion with CMS, a process that started in 2018 with the granting of the two HCPCS billing codes," stated Paul R. Gudonis, Myomo's Chairman and CEO. "This is an important milestone for qualified Medicare Part B beneficiaries with long-term muscular weakness or partial paralysis, and for Myomo as a company. We extend thanks to the personnel at CMS for their efforts and for appreciating the benefits that powered braces such as the MyoPro can provide to Medicare Part B beneficiaries. "
