DME fraud and abuse legislation
This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet
Sen. David Pryor (D-Ark.) reintroduces legislation aimed at reducing fraud and abuse in the reimbursement of durable medical equipment ("The Gray Sheet" Oct. 5, 1992, p. 6). The bill includes provisions to restrict issuance of supplier numbers, standardize certificates of medical necessity and establish national uniform payment criteria for more than 200 medical items. Similar legislation was included in H.R. 11, which was vetoed by former President Bush last year.
