Product Description

Using the PDAC for Proper DME Code Determination and Review of the Medicare DME Fee Schedule

Reporting the right HCPCS codes for your durable medical equipment (DME) isn’t always a straightforward process. Many manufacturers and distributors have coding suggestions, but those can be outdated, based on deleted or revised codes. And selecting the right code from the HCPCS manual can be very confusing because there are many more DME supplies than codes available.

Improper coding can affect your bottom line. Assigning a code with a lower reimbursement than the practice’s cost to obtain the DME can result in losses that quickly compound, making the dispensing of DME a bad business decision.

Join this Live Audio Conference by expert speaker Lynn M. Anderanin, CPC, CPMA, CPPM, CPC-I, COSC, to gain better insights on HCPCS coding for DME. In this session, you’ll learn how to report the appropriate code for the DME that is used in your practice. You will also learn how to use your billing system for inventory and what to reference relative to Medìcare to decide what Medìcare covers, and what it doesn’t.
