Home Oxygen Company clears TPE

Thursday, April 26, 2018

MODESTO, Calif. – Home Oxygen Company has cleared the first round of review for the Targeted Probe and Educate program, the company announced April 25. “This is a collaborative effort between internal and external teams, resulting in compliant files,” said Andrea Ewert, CEO. “We continue our process for success despite the obvious burden.” Noridian Healthcare Solutions, the DME MAC for jurisdictions A and D, selected Home Oxygen Company’s CPAP claims for the TPE program earlier this year. As part of the program, the MACs review 20 to 40 claims per provider, per item or service, per round, for a total of up to three rounds of review. Previously, Home Oxygen Company had received a 12-month reprieve from Noridian for widespread pre-pay reviews for CPAP and oxygen. “I have 100% confidence in our abilities to process orders in the manner Medicare requires,” Ewert said.
