Durable Medical Equipment (DME) COBA Claims Update

July 31, 2012

Some DME COBA claims are being rejected for future dates of service. You can only submit these claims on or after the “to” date listed on the claim.

You need to re-bill any rejected DME COBA claim with a future date of service.

Example: If the claim sent to Medicare has dates of service of 7/1/2012-7/31/2012, the provider needs to wait until 7/31/2012 to bill the claim to MaineCare.

This process will be followed until this issue is resolved. We will notify providers once this issue is resolved.
