Medical Billing DME | DMEPOS EXEMPTIONS for Accreditation and Surety | For Physicians, Non-Physicians, Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapists

Medical Billing DME I publish this article on my blog because many had been asking me for an answer – “Who are exempted from the DMEPOS from accreditation and/or surety bond?” for medical billing DME This article will focus only on Physicians/Non-Physician Practitioners and PT/OT Services Providers: According to the current guideline, the following are exempted: 1. Physicians 2. Physician Assistants 3. CRNA 4. Registered Nutritionists and Dieticians 5. Certified Midwife 6. Clinicial Social Worker 7. Clinical Psychologist **** But you need to be guided that items are provided and rendered to your own patients as a part of your own services! The Occupational and Physical Therapists are also Exempted from the accreditation process and surety bond only if …. 1. The PT/OT solely own and operates the business office; 2. You provide and rendered the items/services only to your own patients as part of professional services rendered; 3. You can only bill for orthotics, prosthetics and supplies. Additionally, I know that CHIROPRACTORS are NOT exempted from accreditation. Kindly see chart below which I have uploaded from =>> http://www.palmettogba.com/ncs and is last updated August 2009. As far as I know, there are no new changes on this guideline. Should you need help on how to complete a CMS-855s DMEPOS Form for your practice, contact me and I will help you.
