Medicaid Releases Updated Guidelines on NPs Ordering DME

The Mississippi Division of Medicaid recently updated their guidelines after a series of conversations and internal discussions for Nurse Practitioners ordering Durable Medical Equipment (DME).  This guideline change is in response to recent CMS reviews of Mississippi’s policies, which were outdated as of the passage of the Affordable Care Act.  CMS required that Mississippi comply with ACA guidelines, which prevented NPs from ordering DME without physician approval.
