I am posting a series of articles with information directly from the websites of the various MACs. Anyone can access this and I feel a little silly posting it, but several clinicians have told me about audits they are undergoing and they had not paid attention either to the type of audit (e.g., Targeted Probe and Educate – TPE, UPIC, etc.), nor had they gone the website of their MAC to see what information was available that might help them.
Noridian is the MAC for Medicare A/B of:
- Region E: California, Hawaii, Nevada, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands
- Region F: Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming
Here’s the limited information they have posted about the TPE results. You can search the website for more information on hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Even if you are not being audited, check out the information on your MACs website about HBOT and wound care.
