DMERC EXEMPTION FOR LOW-COST DME SUPPLIES DISPENSED BY PHYSICIANS

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

DMERC EXEMPTION FOR LOW-COST DME SUPPLIES DISPENSED BY PHYSICIANS will be pursued in the coming months by the American Medical Association's Council on Medical Service. A policy adopted Dec. 6 by AMA's House of Delegates at a meeting in Honolulu states that the association should "work with the Health Care Financing Administration to develop and implement" a policy that would exempt physician office-dispensed, low-cost durable medical equipment from rules that are part of HCFA's DME regional carrier (DMERC) claims processing system, particularly the requirement that DME suppliers obtain supplier identification numbers.
