from PT in Motion
A Centers for Medicare and Medicaid proposed rule could reduce reimbursement for durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supplies by more than $7 billion from 2016 through 2020, largely through applying payment rates from the DMEPOS competitive bidding program in noncompetitive bidding areas. APTA has published a detailed "highlights" summary of the rule on the DMEPOS webpage, part of a suite of APTA resources on Medicare payment.
