Medicaid rules re: Durable Medical Equip (DME) and NPs
How many states’ Medicaid plans do not let NP’s order DME supplies? Does this privledge go hand in hand with NPs full practice authority in states? An NP in Omaha was recently told by a local pharmacy that she was not allowed to order something as simple as a gauze dressings under NE Medicaid rules – has to ordered by a MD, DO or DPM. We need this information as a "barrier to practice example" for a 407 Review Process on scope of practice in Nebraska.
