Claims Processing Reminder from CMS
CMS has learned from a recent review of DMEPOS supplier claims submitted in 2010 that many DMEPOS suppliers are incorrectly reporting the physicians or non-physician practitioners who ordered the items of DMEPOS.
Specifically, DMEPOS suppliers are reporting the National Provider Identifier (NPI) of a non-person entity instead of the NPI of the physician or non-physician practitioner who ordered the DMEPOS.
This message is a reminder that Medicare requires items of DMEPOS to be ordered by physicians or certain non-physician practitioners, not by non-person entities (such as medical groups). Please ensure that your claims are properly completed.
