Medicare pt going from BIPAP to CPAP
« on: December 05, 2012, 07:57:30 AM »
Pt was previously on a BIPAP E0470 through Medicare in which they paid 5 months, and is now getting a CPAP E0601.  Does this pt need to obtain a new F2F, and SS to show that the CPAP does control the OSA? And also go through an initial trial again with download and re eval?  Or would chart notes from the physician be sufficent enough?

Thank You!
