Standard Elements for Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Order, and Master List of DMEPOS Items Potentially Subject to a Face-to-Face Encounter and Written Orders Prior to Delivery and, or Prior Authorization Requirements
SE20007 informs providers that the Calendar Year (CY) 2020 End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Prospective Payment System (PPS) Final Rule CMS-1713-F (84 Fed. Reg Vol 217) goes into effect January 1, 2020. This rule, in part, streamlines the requirements for ordering DMEPOS items through the identification of a standard set of elements to be included in a written order/prescription. It also develops a new Master List of DMEPOS items potentially subject to a face-to-face encounter, written orders prior to delivery and, or prior authorization requirements as a condition of payment (thereby harmonizing prior lists). This standard written order and Master list will simplify the ordering of DMEPOS items and eliminate multiple lists of DMEPOS items potentially subject to conditions of payment.
