The latest results, running through the first quarter of 2017, showed overturn rates of 68% of repository products; 77% for ostomy, urological, wound care and diabetes supplies; and 81% for NPWT devices and supplies. “Please help fight back against a broken audit and appeal system,” says AAHomecare. Registration and participation is free and open to all suppliers at hmeauditkey.org…With HME providers starting to receive Cures payment adjustments from both Noridian and CGS, VGM is asking them to share any issues, including issues with posting in their billing software.
