Guidelines for Dispensing DME

Live Webinar

  • 60 minutes

Durable Medical Equipment can be profitable for medical practices if patients meet the medical necessity requirements, and the office has a process in place to manage the items that are being dispensed to patients. This webinar will assist office personally in creating a whole program centered around DME for the maximum return on investment. We will review proven steps in successful documentation, as well as assigning the proper HCPCS codes, pricing items, and reporting for inventory management. 

Join this session by expert speaker Lynn M. Anderanin, where she will help offices know what is available to be able to determine what is needed for a DME for proper coding, documentation, and billing.

Session Highlights:

• Choosing the appropriate HCPCS codes for Durable Medical Equipment(DME)

• Apply the documentation guidelines CMS has in place when dispensing DME to patients

• Create a standard formula for pricing DME

• Current audits being performed by governmental agencies to find fraud and abuse in DME

• New policies in place to report DME for billing purposes

Why You Should Attend:

Some manufacturers and distributors of DME are not supplying their customers with the most up to date and accurate information on the billing of DME to insurance carriers. All the steps for a successful DME program will be discussed and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions they may have. There have also been recent changes in DME requirements that could be affecting an office's bottom line for proper reimbursement of these items.
