Oticon Medical is now an accredited Medicare provider (US only)
Oticon Medical is proud to announce that we are now an accredited DMEPOS (Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies) provider for Medicare in the US. This accreditation allows Oticon Medical to bill Medicare directly for bone anchored processors for patients with qualifying Medicare coverage.
To earn DMEPOS (Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies) accreditation, Oticon Medical met stringent CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) quality standards that addressed such factors as product quality, business integrity, accountability and performance management.
“We are pleased that our commitment to quality products designed to minimize treatment-related side effects and increase patients’ long term prospects and well-being has enabled us to achieve this important milestone,” says Curt Gorman, General Manager for Oticon Medical USA. “DMEPOS accreditation means that Oticon Medical can increase access to Ponto bone anchored hearing solutions for people enrolled in Medicare – and provide more choice for both patients and physicians.”
Customer service is ready to help
As regulated prescription devices, bone anchored hearing processors can only be dispensed by a medical or hearing health provider. Often, healthcare providers refer their patients directly to manufacturers to purchase upgrade sound processors to their existing bone anchored hearing solutions.
If you or your patients with Medicare coverage are looking to upgrade your current bone conduction processor, or if you have any questions regarding Oticon Medical or the Ponto System, please contact us at 1-888-277-8014 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Oticon Medical is a company committed to creating new possibilities and more choice in bone anchored hearing solutions,” adds Gorman. “As a DMEPOS Supplier, we are uniquely positioned to assist hearing health care providers in extending the potential for treatment and successful outcomes to more patients than ever before.”
