Denied Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Services and Sales Tax, TR 27389

December 13, 2013

On 07/30/2012, we notified you via listserv of an issue related to DME claims and sales tax. The issue occurred when a claim was submitted with multiple DME lines where some lines paid while others denied, the sales tax line paid the full amount billed. Since the sales tax corresponds to both the paid and denied lines, the sales tax lines were overpaid.

This issue has now been corrected and affected claims will be reprocessed.
