Medicare may provide reimbursement for some investigational devices, humanitarian use devices, Phase I investigational drug trials and related services. These services may include those rendered in preparation for the use of the device/drug, contemporaneously with the device/drug, and necessary to the use of the device/drug, and as follow-up care after using the device/drug.
Submission to the local fiscal intermediary is required for Humanitarian Use Devices (HUD) as well. Jackson Health System policy requires these devices be submitted for approval as required by the local fiscal intermediary to ensure proper reimbursement.
Coverage is dependent upon the approval of the reimbursement application submitted to the Fiscal Intermediary (Medicare’s independent contractor). First Coast Service Options will make a coverage determination within 45 days of submission of all the required documentation.
The local Fiscal Intermediary is First Coast Service Options, Inc.
