Sleep Policy

AAHomecare is concerned with the CMS policy on non-consumable supplies as it applies to CPAP. Recently, AAHomecare submitted comments to CMS on the DME MAC bulletin on non-consumable supplies that requires providers to confirm the need for more supplies and refill no sooner than 14 calendars days before the shipping date, confirm the beneficiary request for a refill, and hold off on shipping until 10 calendar days before the beneficiary’s current supply runs out.

AAHomecare members can find more information and get involved in shaping policy for this issue through the Home Medical Equipment/Respiratory Therapy Council. For in-depth commentary on pending legislation and regulations, go to Analysis and Comments, Testimony & Official Statements.
