Transmittal 20-35 Reimbursement for Medical Equipment, Supplies and Appliances

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

The purpose of this transmittal is to notify durable medical equipment (DME) and fee-for-service providers that DHCF has established Medicaid coverage and reimbursement for medical alert services and devices under the home health benefit of the Medicaid State Plan. Medical alert devices and services will include coverage of personal emergency response system (PERS) devices and services, as well as medication management devices (MMD) and services. Addition of coverage of medical alert devices and services under the State Plan aligns with changes DHCF is proposing to the District’s 1915(c) Home and Community Based-Services Waiver for the Elderly and Persons with Physical Disabilities effective October 1, 2020.
