States’ Medicaid Fee-for-Service Durable Medical Equipment Payment Policies

To better inform analysis of existing policies and development of future policies that affect Medicaid payments, the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) released a compendium of each state’s fee-forservice DME policies along with a companion issue brief summarizing payment and coverage policies and issues.

Strategies to Support Dually Eligible Individuals’ Access to Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies

This Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Informational Bulletin provides an additional strategy for states to support timely access to durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS) for people dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare. The Informational Bulletin clarifies that states do not need to require a Medicare denial for DMEPOS that Medicare routinely denies as non-covered under the Medicare DME benefit.

This brief describes several administrative changes that state Medicaid programs can make to: (1) support integration efforts; (2) improve beneficiaries’ experience of care; (3) decrease beneficiary out-of-pocket costs; and (4) reduce provider burden. Taking the steps described in this brief may help states build stronger, more effective integrated care programs and better position them to implement larger-scale integration efforts for their dually eligible populations.
