New Process for Viewing Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Service History via the Web Portal

TO:  DME Providers

 

RE:  New Process for Viewing Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Service History via the Web Portal

 

Beginning January 24, 2023, DME providers may use the new DME Service panel in the Medicaid Interactive Web Portal to view DME service history for nebulizers. 

 

This feature will allow providers to verify if a nebulizer service has previously been performed within the last 4 years. DME history may be searched for the following nebulizer codes: E0570, E0575, and E0580.

 

NOTE: This feature is only available to DME Providers. 

 

As always, providers should verify eligibility prior to rendering any services. We strongly encourage providers to save the eligibility verification until the services have adjudicated.  

 

Effective January 24, 2023, DME Providers contacting our Provider Assistance Center to verify DME history for nebulizer services available for verification via the web portal will be directed to the web portal to obtain DME history.
