How the Medicare CPAP Payment Prohibition Affects Your Business – HomeCare

According to the article:

“The increased demand for CPAPs and disposables creates opportunities for home medical equipment (HME) and durable medical equipment (DME) suppliers. But a word of caution: The supplier can have no involvement with a home sleep test (HST) administered to a patient covered by Medicare fee-for-service (FFS).”

“In short, Medicare will not pay ABC for the CPAP if ABC is the provider of the sleep test. That term is defined as “the individual or entity that directly or indirectly administers and/or interprets the sleep test and/or furnishes the sleep test device used to administer the sleep test.””

At Least 2.5 Million Home Health Patients Using Medical Equipment Vulnerable to Natural Disasters – HomeHealthCareNews

““Health care trends suggest that 2.5 million number is just going to continue to grow as more people opt to age in place,” Marriele Mango, lead author of the study and resilient power fellowship program associate for Clean Energy Group, told HHCN. “In the end, energy security just isn’t there for them in the way that it is in a nursing home, assisted living home or a hospital.”
