Product Description

Learn About the November, 2018 Changes to the Documentation for DME


Durable Medical Equipment (DME) is a necessary piece of the healing process, and helps improve a patient’s quality of life. But there’s also a lot of auditing being performed on physicians and suppliers due to high volumes of reimbursement errors, mostly due to lack of proper documentation. And Medicare recently announced changes to DME documentation. If you’re not current with the recent changes in DME, it could lead to costly revenue losses for your office—something you simply can’t afford in today’s hypercompetitive environment.

Get the latest updates for DME that is dispensed in the orthopedic office in this webinar by coding expert Lynn M Anderanin. Anderanin will review the current documentation requirements for DME, and walk you through the November 2018 changes to the DME documentation recently announced by Medicare. She will review the new code for CAD created inserts; explain the changes occurring to Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) to ensure consistency between DMEPOS geographical areas; and show you how to choose the appropriate HCPCS codes for common DME. You will learn how to price DMEs for your office to make sure your program is profitable, and about the supplies in casting procedures.

After attending this session, you will know about the current changes in DME, and any HCPCS codes added, changed, or revised for 2019. You will know how to profitably manage your DME program by implementing the required documentation. Plus, you will be able to apply the changes, and protect your reimbursement on the services that are critical for a successful DME dispensing.
