FARGO, N.D. –A documentation compliance review for oxygen concentrators (E1390) from Sept. 1, 2014, to Nov. 30, 2014, resulted in an overall error rate of 21%, according to the Jurisdiction D DME MAC. The most common reasons for denial: proof of delivery (POD) was not submitted or was invalid; no documentation to support the beneficiary had been seen and evaluated by the treating physician within 30 days prior to the date of the initial Certificate of Medical Necessity (CMN); and no request documentation received within the allotted timeframe.
