CMS Issues Guidance on Dual Eligible Access to Equipment and Supplies

Share this page

On January 4, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued an Informational Bulletin to “to provide another strategy for states to better support timely access to durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS) for people dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare. Both Medicare and Medicaid cover DMEPOS, which can be essential to dually eligible individuals’ mobility, health status, independence in the community, and overall quality of life.”

This 2019 Informational Bulletin is meant to supplement a previous bulletin issued in 2017. In addition to comparing Medicaid and Medicare DMEPOS coverage, this newest bulletin also discusses Medicare non-coverage lists of DME.
