What is DME?

Durable Medical Equipment (DME) is a therapeutic item that is prescribed by the physicians to patients that are suffering from a certain medical condition. Beyond reasonable medical needs or necessity, a provider cannot offer these items before following a comprehensive DME billing process.

CPAP, Nebulizers, kidney machines can be some of the examples of Durable Medical Equipment. A major chunk of Durable Medical Equipment is usually aimed at extending therapeutics relief for patients with a long term critical condition. Items under DME are durable for an extended period of operations.

What is DME billing?

After the invoice is coded, it is important to collate all the documents and continue the process of claims submission. Missing documents or not having prior knowledge of payer requirements, can be the reasons for higher rates of denial. Clean claims can reduce denials, days in A/R, and guarantee improved cash flow. DME billing is the process of effectively managing the front and back end activities needed to submit and get paid for a claim from the insurance.

What is DME coding?

Medical coding is a specialized segment and coders who work will know all the directory of codes that are used under the DME services. It translates the procedure involved and is helpful for providers and distributors track the billing for fast-tracking the claim. An example of the HCPCS code for CPAP is E0601.

How is DME billing different from billing for other specialties?
There are two components of DME billing, it allows for the rentals and also requires the HCPCS codes. While submitting the claims, the correct codes help to identify the service provided or the billed item. For instance, a blood glucose monitor is represented by HCPCS code E0607.
