lawyers dmepos suppliers

Like most industries, healthcare has vendors that provide products essential to their delivery of care. Vendors for durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supplies, also known as DMEPOS, must practice extreme caution to comply with the legal issues of this business.

Problems with fraud and abuse has kept the government and Medicare’s eye on DMEPOS suppliers. A broadly defined law governs how durable medical equipment can be used in a patient’s home for medical purposes. There are many legal concerns to consider as a supplier to healthcare. For one, an injury or illness is the only reason a person would use the item.

The Stark Law

For DMEPOS suppliers, the Stark Law is an important legal area of consideration. It was written to limit chances of financial fraud by preventing doctors from making referrals when they have a financial relationship with the healthcare entity to which a patient is referred.

The challenge is doctor referrals are the primary way suppliers acquire business. As a result, this can create legal entanglements from trying to obey the law and keep the doors open. Many of the statutes surrounding the doctor-supplier relationship is not always clear. For example, suppliers are not prohibited from stock-and-bill arrangements. However, rents charged must be of fair market value

Anti-Kickback Statutes

Anti-Kickback statutes are another effort to curb fraud and waste. When investigating other violations, DMEPOS suppliers are sometimes faced with high penalties because they do not understand how to navigate these laws.

DMEPOS Suppliers Need a Compliance Plan

Laws concerning DMEPOS continue to change. One shield of protection is to have a compliance plan. Developing this type of plan provides an in-depth look at the supplier’s business practices. By taking into account individual supplier needs, policies and procedures can be implemented to ensure the supplier stays within the law.

Even if an issue arises, having this type of plan ensures the supplier can take the best approach towards making corrections. Additionally, the supplier can perform occasional self-audits to save time and expenses if something raises suspicions.

Get Audit Help from a Lawyer with DMEPOS Expertise

The widespread potential for fraud and abuse in the DMEPOS industry has led to the targeting of suppliers who are making every effort to obey the laws. Audits have become a prominent fixture for decades. Because of technological advances, devices in this industry constantly change and become more useful.

Patients who need these devices are only concerned with one thing: to get what they need for their health. Suppliers are focused on one thing: filling order requests. Staying compliant is another layer that can sometimes make it difficult to deliver the requested equipment.

Documenting everything to prove equipment requests are filling a medical necessity is extremely important. Lack of documentation, coding it incorrectly or duplicating information are some of the most frequent issues that arise during an audit.

Individualized help from an expert DMEPOS lawyer can advise suppliers on how to keep their paperwork in order. Audits can be an expensive and time-consuming undertaking. However, legal assistance can help suppliers deal with – or even avoid – going through the audit process.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
