Medicare Regulations

Hello USA colleagues;

As I read my Region B DMERC Supplier Manual, Revised March 2, 1995, again for

the umpteenth time, I cannot find any requirement that states that a

physician’s prescription is required for repairs to orthotic and prosthetic

devices. I often hear that a written prescription is required for O&P

repairs, but have never actually seen it as a DMERC regulation. As I read

it, a new “order” is required only when an item is replaced or when there is

a change of supplier. If anyone can point me to a DMERC regulation that

addresses this issue, I would appreciate it. I may be overlooking something

in a DMERC bulletin. Thanks.
