RECOUPMENT OF DME CLAIMS PAID OVER THE MODIFIER RR RATE

Claims billed for E0971 with modifier RR (Rental Rate for Manual Wheelchair Accessory, Anti Tipping Device) have paid incorrectly since 9/01/2010 because there was not a rental rate in MIHMS. Claims are being reprocessed to pay at the correct rate. Overpayments will be recouped and no provider action is needed. Any new claims submitted with E0971 with modifier RR will pay at the correct rate. If you have questions, call Provider Services at 1-866-690-5585.
