Power Mobility Devices Equipment Portfolio Report on Medicare Part B Payments
OIG has conducted audits, evaluations, and investigative work involving power mobility devices (PMDs). This work identified inappropriate payments related to medically unnecessary PMDs, PMDs that were less expensive to rent than to purchase, claims that were not documented in accord with Medicare requirements, or fraudulent claims. We will compile the results of prior OIG work looking at PMDs, as well as conduct new analysis using sophisticated data analytics, to identify trends in payment, compliance, and fraud vulnerabilities. We also plan to offer recommendations to reduce identified Medicare PMD vulnerabilities.
