Attention Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Providers
Effective with date of service June 1, 2019, Medicaid guidelines for oxygen probes for use with an oximeter device are being updated. DME providers will submit the appropriate HCPCS code from the DMEPOS fee schedule to bill for these supplies. The rate on file for the HCPCS code includes reimbursement for the tape. The U5 modifier (oxygen probe for use with oximeter device, disposable) must be included on the prior authorization and claim for disposable oxygen probes. If the DME provider bills for a replacement oxygen probe, a modifier would not be used.
Medicaid will publish the new oxygen probe policy in the DMEPOS provider manual on www.lamedicaid.com.
