Standard Documentation Requirements

The CMS Standard Documentation Requirements Article A55426 is your source for all general Medicare documentation requirements. This includes the change in order requirements implemented January 1, 2020 for the Standard Written Order (SWO). Please take time to review and understand all the standard documentation requirements for all claims submitted to the DME MACs. Many errors reported in all Medicare audits are due to claims submitted with incomplete or missing required documentation. By obtaining and submitting, when requested, all required documentation for claims, there will be less rework and quicker reimbursement for the services suppliers provide to beneficiaries.
