DME company accepting RDI for Medicare
#1
Hi everyone! Do you guys know of any DME companies accepting RDI (respiratory disturbance index) values for Medicare patients? I have a patient who obviously needs CPAP. Appreciate the help.

What matters is what Medicare will accept.
If you are a physician, you can always write the script; the DMEs typically check insurance coverage before issuing a machine.
Or, you could call a DME. Medicare has gone to competitive bid winners for CPAP supplies. (That might be just for certain metro areas) So, not all DMEs made the list.
