What’s New with BIS

Why become a non-par DME provider through Medicare? BALANCE BILLING!

Many providers think that becoming a Medicare provider means that they must accept low rates. While Medicare only allows a certain amount for oral appliances in OSA treatment, being a non-par (or non-participating) provider with Medicare DME means you can balance bill your patients the remaining balance over what Medicare will allow. Getting clients in the door can be a battle, and what a great way to increase foot traffic in your office. 

Becoming a non-par DME provider does not mean you have to accept Medical dental policies either! Reach out to [email protected] today to find out how we can help you get registered with Medicare today! 

Suppose you are a participating provider with Medicare and would like to opt out and become a non-par instead. In that case, you need to complete before the end of the year, or you will be locked into being a participating provider for another whole year! We can help with this as well.

BIS is excited to announce a new CE course! Check out “Beyond MAD with Dr. Chris Farrugia”!
