The OIG has issued a report entitled “Part B Services During Non-Part A Nursing Home Stays: Durable Medical Equipment.” The OIG found that $30 million was inappropriately allowed for DME during non-Part A skilled nursing facility stays in 2006, most of which were also certified by Medicaid. Also, the OIG found that nearly $11.9 million more was inappropriately allowed by Part B during Medicaid nursing facility stays and distinct-part nursing home stays providing primarily skilled care. The OIG recommends that CMS take a number of steps to prevent inappropriate payments.
