The following information describes coverage and payment information regarding the use of Cough Assist (previously Cofflator). Coding, coverage, payment and documentation guidelines are listed below. This is to be used as a guide. For an item to be covered by Medicare, the following conditions apply: (1) item must be eligible for a defined Medicare benefit category, (2) item must be reasonable and necessary for the diagnosis or treatment of illness or injury or to improve the functioning of a malformed body member and (3) item must meet all applicable Medicare statutory and regulatory requirements. For specific instructions, please reference your Supplier Manual or contact your Durable Medical Equipment Medicare Administrative Contractor (DME MAC) provider helpline.
The Cough Assist device is classified in the payment policy category “Capped Rental.” Medicare will pay on a rental basis for continuous use up to 13 months, after which the title and ownership of the equipment will transfer to the beneficiary.
Cough Assist is a portable electric device which utilizes a blower and a valve to alternately apply a positive and then a negative pressure to a patient’s airway in order to assist the patient in clearing retained bronchopulmonary secretions. Air is delivered to and from the patient via a breathing circuit incorporating a flexible tube, a bacterial filter and either a facemask, a mouthpiece or an adapter to a tracheostomy or endotracheal tube. Physicians, trained respiratory therapists, nurses, and family members administer this therapy.
The Cough Assist device is indicated for any patients unable to cough or clear secretions effectively due to reduced peak cough expiratory flow (less than 5-6 liters/second), resulting from high spinal cord injuries, neuromuscular deficits or severe fatigue associated with intrinsic lung diseases. Other methods of controlling secretions should have been tried but failed to provide significant response including inhalers, IPPB, incentive spirometry, PEP mask therapy, and flutter devices.
Use of Cough Assist may be of particular importance for patients on any type of noninvasive ventilation, since suctioning is difficult without a tracheal or endotracheal tube in place. Exsufflation with negative pressure enhances or replaces the patient’s natural cough, providing the necessary removal of secretions.
Contraindications include a history of bullous emphysema, known susceptibility to pneumothorax
or pneumo-mediastinum, or recent barotrauma. Patients known to have cardiac instability should be monitored closely for pulse and oxygen saturation when using the Cough Assist device
