CMS evaluating PMD demo

Friday, January 27, 2017

WASHINGTON – CMS has contracted with Provider Resources to conduct an evaluation of its power mobility device demonstration project. CMS has sent letters to physicians, asking them to schedule interviews with Provider Resources to share their opinions and thoughts on the process. “Your feedback could have a direct impact on how PMDs and other services or supplies could be requested and/or processed in the future,” the agency states in its letter to physicians. As part of the demo, which kicked off in 2012, providers must submit prior authorization requests for certain PMDs.
