Prior Authorization (PA) Not Needed for Emergency Rentals

A PA is not needed for Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Emergency Rentals (Oxygen Concentrators, E1390-RR and E1391-RR). Claims without a PA for these DME emergency rentals were previously denied. Claims will be reprocessed. You do not need to resubmit these claims.
