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.
INFORMATION ON APNEA BOARD FORUMS OR ON APNEABOARD.COM SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AS MEDICAL ADVICE. ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OF A PHYSICIAN BEFORE SEEKING TREATMENT FOR MEDICAL CONDITIONS, INCLUDING SLEEP APNEA. INFORMATION POSTED ON THE APNEA BOARD WEB SITE AND FORUMS ARE PERSONAL OPINION ONLY AND NOT NECESSARILY A STATEMENT OF FACT.
