Product Description

Meeting CMS Documentation Requirements for DME to Avoid Overpayments and Recoupments in Medicare

One thing you need to get right if you’re looking for Medicare pay for your durable medical equipment (DME) supplies is your documentation. CMS has very specific guidelines for proving medical necessity for DME for your patients, and not meeting those could not only result in payment losses but could put you at risk for audits. 

Take the guesswork out of your guideline compliance. Join this informative session with expert speaker Lynn M. Anderanin and learn what needs to be in patients’ records to  demonstrate medical necessity. Lynn will share advice on proper HCPCS coding, sample forms you can use, and explain what’s needed to ensure CMS guideline compliance.
