AAH surveys providers on PMD demo

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

WASHINGTON – AAHomecare’s Complex Rehab & Mobility Council is collecting feedback from providers about the prior authorization demonstration project for power mobility devices currently taking place in 19 states. Responses to the council’s brief online survey are due by May 25. “The PMD prior authorization program has been a win-win for the HME industry and for CMS, and information from this survey will bolster our efforts in working toward a nationwide, permanent prior authorization program for PMDs,” said Nancy Froslie of Sanford Healthcare Accessories, who serves as chairwoman of the council. The demo is set to expire Aug. 31. The council is also preparing a white paper that articulates the positive results of the demo and outlines regulatory opportunities to expand prior authorization for PMDs beyond Aug. 31.
