In some instances, private insurers or beneficiaries have purchased devices falling under the "Respiratory Assist Device (RAD)" regional medical review policy prior to Medicare eligibility. For those devices that utilize separately payable accessories (i.e., K0532), the supplier must obtain the beneficiary statement and physician statement outlined in the policy. These statements must be kept on file by the supplier but should not be routinely submitted with the claim for the accessories. The DMERC may request copies of these documents at its discretion.
