All About DME Medical Billing Software

How to find the right DME medical billing software. We've looked at various options and compared our findings...

No matter which field in the healthcare industry you work in, it's important to have practice management software that's especially suited to meet your needs. The same goes for Durable Medical Equipment.

Durable Medical Equipment, or DME, is the specialty that deals only with the durable medical equipment that patients need to continue their health care treatments, either in the inpatient or the outpatient settings.

In other words, DME supplies the necessary equipment for patients who need wheelchairs, braces, and nebulizer machines for home use, among many other things.

Finding the right DME software

Because DME billing is so different than regular medical billing and coding, there are many things in typical practice management software that it doesn't need.

DME providers don't actually see patients - they only bill for and distribute equipment to patients who have already been seen by their primary care physicians.

If you've ever searched for software before then you'll know how difficult it can be to find exactly what you're looking for. An internet search will present you with hundreds if not thousands of options, all touting the fact that they are the best DME billing software on the market today.

We've put together this short list of possible options for you, but what's more important to keep in mind is that you need to find the right software for your practice and your professional needs.

If you're not sure that the software you are interested in is the right match, call the software company and see if they can come into your office for a demonstration. Some software packages also have online demos of their products - very helpful for figuring out what's best for you.

Call the product support or sales line to speak to a real person with your questions and concerns about the software, as well as for pricing options.

If the software company that you're interested in isn't responsive, pushes you around, or tries to get you to sign a contract before you've begun using the software, it's a good idea to reconsider and look for other options.
