Home Support Coverage Guidelines

  CoxHealth Home Support developed the following reference tools as a guide to current medical necessity criteria for the insurance coverage of Durable Medical Equipment (DME) and supplies.

These reference tools will be reviewed and maintained on a consistent and quarterly basis. Significant changes that occur more frequently will be updated accordingly. These reference tools are based upon criteria for the five most utilized insurances at CoxHealth Home Support which are Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross/Anthem, CoxHealth Plans and United Healthcare. It is divided into sections by the type of equipment/service being utilized. For items not included in these reference tools or questions, please contact the Order Intake department at CoxHealth Home Support for specifics to your situation.

It is our hope that these reference tools will lend some consistent clarity to insurance coverage details for Ordering Providers, Customer Service staff, Clinical staff and ultimately the Patient /Customer.
