DMEPOS: Bill Correctly for Items Provided During Inpatient Stays

In a recent report, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) determined that Medicare improperly paid suppliers for Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) items provided during inpatient stays. Medicare should not pay a supplier for items furnished to a beneficiary when the beneficiary is still an inpatient. CMS developed the Medicare DMEPOS Improper Inpatient Payments Fact Sheet to help you bill correctly.
