2016 was a tumultuous year for Medicare reimbursement of DME.  There were cuts in reimbursement, updated policies, and changes in claim submission.  Where do these changes leave us today when it comes to ordering and providing the proper wheelchair and making sure the suppliers are properly paid?

Are clients having to rent their high level CRT power wheelchair?  Do they have to rent the separate options?  Is a therapist required to complete an evaluation and write an LMN? Is my client required to use a specific supplier?  What is the time frame to have all documentation completed? These are just some of the questions that will be addressed during the session.

This session will provide the latest Medicare updates as they relate to complex rehab technology (CRT).  We will also discuss the most current coverage policies and documentation requirements.  Whether you are a clinician ordering equipment or a supplier providing equipment, you must be up to date with all the details to ensure the best service for your client.

*Special Note*

CMS updated the PMD PA information in the days following this presentation, and a new program went into effect on March 20, 2017.
