TOPEKA, Kan. – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said in December it planned to submit an amendment to set the Medicaid fee schedule for DMEPOS items at 65% of the non-rural Medicare rates, effective Jan. 1. MAMES is working to set up a meeting with CMS to discuss the proposal, according to a bulletin. MAMES says that a legislative and regulatory approach may be needed to stop the cut from being implemented. Comments on the proposal are due Jan. 22.
