MO HealthNet Provider Hot Tip of the Week

Delivery and Placement Dates Versus Date of Service

April 14, 2014
Reminder — the date of service for items such as dentures, hearing aids, eyeglasses or durable medical equipment, should be the date of delivery or placement of the device or item. The date of service is not the date the device or item is ordered or fabricated. Providers should reference Missouri State Regulation 13 CSR 70-3.100(7)(D)(7).

The MO HealthNet Division provides weekly tips to providers to assist them in receiving timely reimbursement for services provided. As each new tip is posted, existing ones are archived on the same site for easy reference. Please share these weekly tips with your billing staff.
