New DMEPOS Order Requirements as of January 1, 2020

Only one type of order is needed for DMEPOS items you order as of January 1, 2020. To help reduce provider burden, the preliminary/dispensing order, Detailed Written Order (DWO), Five Element Order (5EO)/Written Order Prior to Delivery (WOPD), Seven Element Order (7EO), and Detailed Product Description (DPD) will no longer be needed for DMEPOS. The streamlined order will be referred to as the Standard Written Order (SWO). Refer to the new Standard Documentation Requirements for All Claims Submitted to DME MACs (A55426) for details on the new order elements. Noridian supports this significant change and improvement for our suppliers and ordering/referring providers with whom they partner for their beneficiary's care. We are focused on updating the outreach and resources surrounding required documentation. We will work on website page updates, tutorials, and new presentations to best communicate the current information and requirements. We appreciate your patience as we complete the necessary activities.
