CMS waiver regarding Durable Medical Equipment (www.cms.gov/emergency)
posted 9 months ago by CERV from Community Emergency Response Volunteers of the Monterey Peninsula
For specific information, go to [www.cms.gov/emergency] Waiver allows suppliers of Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) where DMEPOS is lost, destroyed, irreparably damaged, or otherwise rendered unusable to waive the face-to-face requirement, a new physician’s order, and new medical necessity documentation required for replacement. Suppliers must still include a narrative description on the claim explaining the reason why the equipment must be replaced and are reminded to maintain documentation indicating that the DMEPOS was lost, destroyed, irreparably damaged or otherwise rendered unusable as a result of the disaster or emergency.
