Base fee:
  • The provision of power tilt, power recline and the combination of power tilt and recline is
    coming under scrutiny by third party payors who are looking to assure that the medical need
    for the power seat function has been documented. There is a significant discrepancy between
    Medicare’s coverage criteria and RESNA’s position papers on the need for these
    power seat functions, which will be discussed. In addition, there is a misconception that the
    provision of power adjustable seat height (aka power seat elevation) is not covered by third
    party payors, which is inaccurate. Many third party payors that implement a prior authorization
    process will consider this technology on a case-by-case basis and are looking to assure
    that the medical need for the power seat function has been documented. There is a significant
    difference between Medicare’s coverage criteria and RESNA’s position on the need for
    this power seat function, which will be discussed.
  • There are many factors to consider when making the selection of the
    appropriate power wheelchair base with an end user. Providers and clinicians need a
    hands on awareness of the interaction of all of these factors, and more importantly, how
    they will come together to either enhance, or diminish the effectiveness of the PMD for
    their patient.
  • Those that will be attending this class have gone through learning the basics of the medical policies with oxygen and CPAP equipment. These experienced students have read the
    policies more then they prefer but also know it’s important to keep the instructions (LCDs) handy. To survive the deep waters, we need to fill up our oxygen tanks and keep our pressures
    optimal to give us a better understanding of those grey areas. During this session, we will work through the muddy waters to take a deeper dive into oxygen and CPAP reimbursement.
    This means the students will be participating during class by working through case studies to determine which ones need cleared up and which ones need to take the dive. We will also
    work through common scenarios that occur where the policies don’t have a clear solution. This class is for only for advanced student that has experience from being in the DME industry
    for many years. Put on your helmet and fill up your tank, we’re going for a dive. And if you have an unusual case study bring it to the class with you, along with any unusual situations.
    (remember to redact the PHI). Learning Objectives: Review unusual situations that occur with billing oxygen and CPAP claims that are not clearly defined in a policy; Participate in
    case studies to determine if the claim passes review, Discuss measures that can be implemented into a company policy from the lessons learned.
