Health & Family Services
(Medical Assistance Reimbursement of Providers of Disposable Medical Supplies)
The State of Wisconsin reimburses providers for disposable medical supplies provided to Medical Assistance recipients. This is done under the authority of Title XIX of the Federal Social Security Act and ss. 49.43 to 49.47, Wisconsin Statutes. This program, administered by the State's Department of Health and Family Services, is called Medical Assistance (MA) or Medicaid. Federal statutes and regulations require that a state plan be developed that provides the methods and standards for reimbursement of covered services. A plan that describes the reimbursement system for the services (methods and standards for reimbursement) is now in effect.
This notice regarding reimbursement is not required under federal law, but is being published to convey information to the public. Effective August 1, 1996, the Department will modify the reimbursement system for disposable medical supplies to prevent excessive utilization and to establish controls on billing errors. The modifications include the following:
Limits will be placed on the quantities of disposable medical supplies which may be dispensed to a recipient.
Prior authorization will be required for quantities in excess of limits and for certain items which are particularly susceptible to abuse.
The estimated net effect of these modifications on expenditures of the Wisconsin Medical Assistance Program is to decrease spending in FY 1997 by $160,417 all funds ($96,250 federal financial participation and $64,167 general purpose revenue).
