Medicare beneficiary purchases of upgraded DME eased under Rep. Brown's bill.

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

MEDICARE BENEFICIARY PURCHASES OF UPGRADED EQUIPMENT WOULD BE EASED by a bill (HR 1754) introduced June 7 by Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio). The measure, cosponsored by Rep. Steve LaTourette (R-Ohio), would modify Medicare durable medical equipment assignment policy so that as of Jan. 1, 1996, Medicare beneficiaries would not have to pay the full cost of an item of DME up front when the item is "in excess of or more expensive than the standard item for which [Medicare] payment may be made."
