This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet
Executive SummaryHCFA agrees to allow durable medical equipment suppliers to deliver items to patients up to two days before discharge from a facility, according to the National Association for Medical Equipment Services. With the change, which will be published in the next issue of the DME regional carriers' supplier bulletins, suppliers cannot bill for the items - which are used in the patient's home - until the date of discharge. Suppliers also have to transport the items from the facility to the patient's home. DME companies and facilities like the provision because it allows for patients to be fitted and trained with items before they are discharged
