Durable Medical Equipment Update

August 23, 2012

This message is an update to various communications we have had with you in the past few months regarding the Department’s budget. After multiple conversations with DME dealers, we have realized the negative impact that some of our proposed changes would have. Therefore, the Department will not move forward with implementing the following two initiatives:

  • Discontinuation of Reimbursement for Sales Tax for DME Supplies (S9999 billing code) – please submit claims if you have been holding them while awaiting more information from the Department.

  • Requirement for Members to Purchase Some DME by mail
