Medicare contractors publish Local Coverage Determinations (LCD's) by region that review the medical necessity and documentation requirements for coverage of Durable Medical Equipment Prosthetics and Orthotics (DMEPOS). These coverage determinations are governed by the Medicare Coverage Database. The administrator for Medicare in our region, also known as Jurisdication B, is Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Family Medical is bound by the rules and coverage limitations mandated by Medicare and CMS. We are only able to dispense medical equipment as mandated by Medicare and CMS. We comply fully with their documentation and clinical requirements. Family Medical will work with you and your Physician to obtain documentation required by these bodies.
