WASHINGTON – New guidance issued by CMS on electronic visit verification requirements for certain Medicaid services does not apply to durable medical equipment, according to a bulletin from AAHomecare. The issue first came to the association’s attention when the state of Minnesota issued guidance that this requirement would apply to DME.  AAHomecare followed up with CMS to clarify the issue and educated agency staff on the significant differences between home-health visits and equipment delivery/set-up.
