Preparing for a Transition from an FI/Carrier to a Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) or from one Durable Medical Equipment (DME) MAC to another DME MAC

All fee-for-service physicians, providers, and suppliers who submit claims to Fiscal Intermediaries (FIs), Carriers, Regional Home Health Intermediaries (RHHIs), or DME MACs for services provided to Medicare beneficiaries. Providers already billing Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) have already transitioned and need not review this article. However, suppliers billing DME MACs may find the article of value as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recompetes the DME MAC contracts, which could cause a transition from an incumbent DME MAC to a new DME MAC.
