I currently get my pump supplies from CCS Medical. I recently switched from Tandem’s TruSteel infusion set to their AutoSoft 90. CCS Medical tells me because I switched from a ‘needle’ infusion set to a teflon cannula that my Doctor needs to write a new prescription because Medicare requires it.
My doctor is a GP because there are no Endocrinologists in our town. My GP is a really nice doctor who listens when a patient comes to her with any kind of problem. However each time that her office sends CCS Medical the chart notes for my pump supplies, it seems that they omit some crucial piece of information according to CCS Medical.
Can anyone give me the information or a link that Medicare is requiring specifically for changing infusion sets more than every 3 days? CCS Medical tells me that Medicare rules changed for 2018 but they don’t seem to know just exactly what changed. They don’t have a form for the doctor to fill out - the chart notes are supposed to contain certain information.
