Overview:

Durable Medical Equipment is very often a part of a patient’s treatment plan.

When a medical office dispenses DME to their patient’s they can ensure that the patient is receiving the most beneficial item(s), and it makes it convenient for the patient in there is no delay in beginning to use the item and/or having to go somewhere else to obtain it.

Why you should Attend: Medical offices take on the initial expense of obtaining durable medical equipment(DME) for their patients in hopes that there is a profit made in dispensing these items to patients. If the office is not familiar with the latest documentation guidelines set by Medicare, they are putting their office at risk of not receiving reimbursement or being audited by Medicare that could result in refunds and penalties.

The Recovery Audit Contractors for Medicare are routinely auditing DME for documentation compliance and Medicare has made recent changes to some of the requirements.
