In this episode, Meg Pekarske and Bryan Nowicki discuss the latest round of audits from the Office of Inspector General (OIG) which focus on Durable Medical Equipment (DME), supplies and their “relatedness” to a patient’s terminal prognosis. Whether or not you are subject to these Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) audits, we share strategies for withstanding government scrutiny of your relatedness determinations, including the who, when, why and how of your decision making.
