Medicare Requires Face-to-Face Appointment & Prescription Prior to Delivery of Certain DME Items

Aeroflow Healthcare is compliant with all Medicare requirements. Our staff works tirelessly to stay up to date on the latest policies, so we can assure patients their medical equipment is provided legally and the process is as smooth as possible. The Affordable Care Act requires that a physician (MD, DO or DPM), physician assistant (PA), nurse practitioner (NP) or clinical nurse specialist (CNS) has had a face-to-face examination with the beneficiary within six months of the written order for and delivery of select medical devices supplied by a DME*.

But what does that mean? Don’ worry, your Aeroflow representative will walk you through it. Whether you are attempting to receive a mobility device, nebulizer, ventilator or CPAP machine and supplies, our team will work with you and your insurance to make sure all proper appointments are made and documentation is filed. Our patients appreciate our diligence because this results in fewer unexpected out of pocket costs, not to mention the peace of mind knowing Aeroflow will take you through the maze of insurance.

If at any time you have questions about the Affordable Care Act, Medicare requirements, durable medical equipment or the process of obtaining said equipment through insurance, call 888-345-1780 where a live Aeroflow Healthcare representative is standing by 24/7 to assist you.
