Power Mobility Devices Equipment– Portfolio Report on Medicare Part B Payments

Previous OIG work identified inappropriate payments for power mobility devices (PMDs) that were medically unnecessary, were not documented in accordance with Medicare requirements, cheaper to rent instead of purchase, or were fraudulent. We will compile the results of prior OIG audits, evaluations, and investigations of PMD equipment paid by Medicare to identify trends in payment, compliance, and fraud vulnerabilities and offer recommendations to improve detected vulnerabilities. This planned work will offer recommendations to reduce Medicare PMD vulnerabilities that were detected in prior OIG work.
