NO COST ITEMS
In order to submit an accessory for Medicare reimbursement, you must have a separate line item charge on the manufacturer's invoice for that accessory. Meaning, the manufacturer's invoice must reflect a charge for the accessory consistent with your usual discount structure. You must pay for it, to get paid for it.
Before you submit an accessory for Medicare reimbursement you must verify the following:
1. The accessory is NOT part of the basic equipment package (BEP) and
2. You have supporting medical documentation, from a clinician, for the accessory (example - adjustable height arms) and
3. You have a line item charge for the accessory on the manufacturer's invoice
