Durable Medical Equipment (DME) COBA claims update

June 23, 2011

Some DME COBA claims are being rejected during our HIPAA validation for future dates of service. At this time, we are working with Medicare personnel to help identify where this is happening and the root cause.

Until further notice, MaineCare Services recommends that all DME providers who submitted a DME COBA claim and received a denial for a future date of service to resubmit their denied claim (and submit any future claims) on paper.

Please refer to our billing instructions for specifics on filling out the paper form.
