There’s a growing presence of the professional DME billing services. There are quite a few reasons behind that. DME billing is different. Interestingly, the definite distinction between billing for Durable Medical Equipment (DME) services and other clinical systems is often overlooked by even the industry insiders. DME or Home Medical Equipment has an underlying role to play in assisting clinical services, subjected to specific conditions. Unfortunately, there are some longstanding issues that DME billing faces:
♦ Some DME’s are no authorized by Medicare, Medicaid, and/or private health insurance plans.
♦ Often considered as therapeutic services.
♦ Lack of Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) coders. HCPCS is the level II codes assigned for DME gear and supplies.
♦ Often not within permissible reimbursement limit under the patient’s policy.
The above points are the major reasons for pharmacies and other healthcare entities dealing with DME products are turning towards the HME billing services. Add to it the aftermath of various regulatory changes like the Final Rules. Through the Final Rules, the CMS mandated prior authorization for some DMEs, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS). The overhaul has increased the complexity around additional documentation. The pharmacists and the providers need to keep themselves updated with information on Medicare laws, coverage policies, supplier manuals, etc. by referring the DMEMAC websites. Employing a specific software or service to handle the DME billing and documentation can also help. However, lack of professional DMB billing experts, high training costs to train the existing employees, etc. are few of the reasons that limit the DME sellers from achieving the desired success. No wonder, the professional DME billing services are employed to handle the situation.
