Episode #152: Look for the Bare Necessities - The Certificate of Medical Necessity

May 13, 2021




All non-emergency ambulance transports billed to Medicare, some Medicaid and commercial insurance programs require a supporting document that we have begun to call the Certificate of Medical Necessity.  In this episode of the QMC EMS Board and Collar podcast, we’ll help unravel the mystery that surrounds the two types of documents, the PCS and the N-PCS.  Plus, we’ll take some time to talk about the purpose of these documents and who must sign them pertaining to the reason surrounding the transport.
