How to Become A DME Supplier in Medicare
Doctors of Chiropractic can become “suppliers” of Durable Medical Equipment (DME) to Medicare patients when reasonable and necessary. According to one of the four Medicare DME insurance companies (Cigna), Medicare will reimburse for DME Supplies, such as back braces, to: 1) reduce pain by limiting joint mobility; 2) facilitate healing following an injury surgical procedure of the spine or related soft tissue; or 3) or support weak spinal muscles or deformities of the spine. Many Medicare patients have significant permanent degeneration in their spine, disc herniation’s, degenerative scoliosis, antalgic posture, spondylolisthesis, and spinal surgery. These patients would greatly benefit from a lumbar/sacral back brace.
Few chiropractors realize that Medicare has set a fee schedule and they will reimburse DME suppliers $930, or more, for lumbo-sacral supports when prescribed as mentioned above. I have put together all of the forms, checklist and reimbursement spreadsheet for all durable medical equipment that Medicare covers.
