Hi All,

I hope someone can help. We are an ortho group that bill for DME here in the office. Now our Doc's want to know if they treat a pt at the hospital can they bring the DME equipment (eg) comfort form wrist, for support of the wrist L3908 to the hospital and we bill for it from our office.

Any advice or thoughts on this matter will be greatly appreciated

Thank you,

Cathy

Cathy, I know Docs do this...and they always want to know whether it'll get paid, but really it's up to the individual carrier. I would call the Provider Rep at that patient's insurance and ask, especially if it's an expensive DME. Sorry, not a fantastic answer! But it seems those carriers are always looking for reasons not to pay on those DME items!
