Yesterday afternoon, AAHomecare received an advance copy of a proposed rule for prior authorization of DMEPOS items in Medicare Part B.

In this proposed the rule, CMS is soliciting public comments on establishing criteria for a master list of durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS) items that are frequently subject to unnecessary utilization (according to CMS) and may be subject to prior authorization based on a history of improper payment as well as a process for implementing prior authorization for those items.
