  On Demand  The Facts about Reimbursement for Self-Administered Drugs

Educational Grant From Craneware
In visits to hospitals around the United States, Craneware has observed much uncertainty about how self-administered drugs should be handled in Medicare claims. Generally, self-administered drugs are not covered by the Social Security Act, but there are some notable exceptions. Hospitals should familiarize themselves with those exceptions, so that they do not pass up reimbursement to which they are legitimately entitled.
Program Objectives:
  • Understand how SADs are defined by Medicare and Medicaid.
  • Identify the coverage requirements for drugs and biologicals.
  • Identify exceptions that permit SAD reimbursement.
  • Understand Medicare and Medicaid policies regarding non-reimbursable SADs.
