Do I need a prescription to get a supply?
Certain covered items can be reimbursed by Medicare only if the prescriber has furnished the supplier with a written order for the item prior to delivery. In the case of Condo Pharmacy, a prescription serves as the prescriber’s written order. Some covered items require additional documentation such as a CMN as well.
Note: If the item is prescribed after the purchase date, the claim will be denied. In order for the item to be payable under the Medicare benefit, the supplier must have the prescription in hand before the beneficiary receives the item.
