Only one type of order is needed for DMEPOS claims with dates of service January 1, 2020 or after. To help reduce supplier and provider burden, the preliminary/dispensing order, Detailed Written Order (DWO), Five Element Order (5EO)/Written Order Prior to Delivery (WOPD), Seven Element Order (7EO), and Detailed Product Description (DPD) will no longer be needed for DMEPOS.

The DME MACs have posted the notice to their websites and are in the process of updating website pages, and drafting tutorials and new presentations to best communicate the current information and requirements.

For now, suppliers can reference the updated policy article, Standard Documentation Requirements for All Claims Submitted to DME MACs (A55426), and Standard Written Order (SWO) for complete information.
