Immunosuppressive Drugs - Proof of Delivery Update

Effective April 30, 2018, for claims with date of service on or after August 1, 2016, suppliers have the option to mail immunosuppressive drugs to the beneficiary up to two days prior to the anticipated discharge date from an inpatient stay. Delivery must be to a valid place of service (e.g., home, custodial facility) and not another facility (e.g., inpatient or skilled nursing) that does not qualify as the beneficiary's home. The supplier must enter the date of discharge as the date of service on the claim. Refer to IOM for additional billing instructions.
