Denied Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Services and Sales Tax

July 31, 2012

We have identified an issue related to DME claims and sales tax. Currently, when a claim is submitted with multiple DME lines and some lines pay and some lines deny, the sales tax line pays the full amount billed. Since the sales tax corresponds to both the paid and denied lines, the sales tax lines are being overpaid. We are currently working to correct this issue and will provide additional information once it is available.
