Durable Medical Equipment (DME)
Increased patient outcomes result in increased practice income. Durable medical equipment (DME) programs are a legal and ethical vehicle for orthopedic practices to capture various ancillary revenues. Your practice can reduce risk and effort in new billables by utilizing The Physician’s Rx to stock and bill your inventory with a durable medical equipment program.
The Physician’s Rx provides brand name products at generic prices with a complete line of high quality, value priced orthopedic supplies from neck braces to crutches, lumbar supports to finger splints. We work with suppliers, vendors and our own sources to create an inventory and management system that meets both the clinical and post-op needs of your patients and the specific needs of your practice. Our multi-brand suppliers include Don Joy, Breg, Optec Brace, and more. We can also purchase any existing inventory.
The program is customized for each practice, and our staff can quickly help you assess the applicability for your practice. We can even arrange for custom bracing and full time or part time fitters to be at your practice.
All billing and collections for DME are handled for you, freeing up your administrator to focus on the primary aspects of your practice. Florida Bracing Centers, our affiliate provider of bracing solutions, is an orthotics and prosthetics company with a 70 person billing staff. As an O&P they fall under different billing codes than a regular distributor, lending to its high collections rate of billables.
We stay abreast of regulatory changes and what the payors will and will not allow, which products require prescriptions or pre-authorizations, warranties, or safety information. We are also current with new patient education instructions, accounting and insurance rules, coding updates and allowable fee modifications. All insurance carriers are accepted.
Even practices that run their own DME can generally realize improvement in profitability using The Physician’s Rx, not to mention the time saved for office and clinical staff who previously dealt with billing, collections, fittings and patient education
We’re confident we can help you meet the needs of more patients and increase the amount of revenue your practice receives from DME.
