Providers must submit Form 4116-DME to HHSC to request reimbursement authorization.
Include at least two bids that include specifications from the durable medical equipment (DME) suppliers, or justification for not providing two bids, and proof of payment for DME (i.e., receipt from supplier, copy of check used for purchase or statement detailing amount paid with proof of payment for portion not paid for by Medicare).
- Only the format on Form 4116-DME will be accepted. Different formats will be rejected and returned to the provider.
- Form 4116-DME is to be used for multiple individuals for one calendar month.
- List each DME item separately.
- Use one set of forms for each month of claims. Do not include billings for multiple months on the same Form 4116-DME.
- For each provider number (facility), submit one form for the total amount to be paid for each individual month. A form must be submitted for the total dollar amount of claims identified on the form.
- Receipts that indicate payments have been made to the DME supplier must accompany Form 4116-DME. The receipts must match the dollar figure on Form 4116-DME and must clearly identify the individual for whom the DME was purchased.
- To facilitate the payment process, organize and submit the billing claims information as follows:
- Form 4116-DME(s),
- individual receipt(s), and
- bid specifications.
- Failure to follow these instructions will result in Form 4116-DME being returned to the intermediate care facility for individuals with an intellectual disability or related conditions (ICF/IID) provider.
