Update: More To Come On Changes To The Final Rule

In Noridian’s latest update, there is a reminder for the final ruling for CMS-1713, which includes information related to “Standard Elements for DMEPOS Order, and Master List of DMEPOS Items Potentially Subject to a Face-to-Face Encounter and Written Orders Prior to Delivery and, or Prior Authorization Requirements.” The information related to the Standard Written Order and Prior Authorization appears to be unchanged. Currently, it appears as if there are just a few minor updates.

The DME industry was hoping CMS would include broader changes, specifically postponing the competitive bidding program until the end of the PHE. 

More information to come as the VGM Team reads through the detailed information here.
