Currently the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have several audits being performed on providers that are reporting Durable Medical Equipment. There are specific guidelines published that explain the documentation that is required for DME, and CMS has found that improper payments are being made because the documentation they are receiving in their audits is incorrect or lacking what is needed.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently updated the durable medical equipment (DME) documentation guidelines, and the revisions are significant. One of the biggest changes involves 4 DME Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and a revised “Dear Physician” letter regarding DME general documentation requirements.
In this latest DME documentation guideline update webinar by coding director, Lynn M. Anderanin, she will help you understand what documentation is necessary to meet CMS requirements for dispensing DME. All this information and practical knowledge will help providers pass any audit the CMS choose to perform on them. You will also get a checklist (handout) to help you meet documentation and medical necessity requirements.
