Sunday, May 31, 2009

FARGO, N.D.--High error rates for K0823 standard power chairs have caught the attention of Noridian Administrative Services (NAS), the DME MAC for Jurisdiction D. Providers should be prepared to supply additional documentation for power wheelchairs, Group 2 standard, captain’s chair, patient weight capacity up to and including 300 pounds. If you receive a request from NAS for additional documentation on this code, you must submit the information requested within 30 days to avoid a claim denial.
