Effective October 1, 1990, necessary maintenance and servicing of pumps after the 15- month rental limit is reached may include repairs and extensive maintenance that involves the breaking down of sealed components, or performing tests that require specialized testing equipment not available to the beneficiary or nursing home. The DMERC will pay only for actual incidents of maintenance, servicing, or replacement. For enteral pumps, no more than one-half rental payment may be paid every six months, beginning six months after the last rental payment. For parenteral pumps, no more than one-half the rental payment may be paid every three months, beginning three months after the last rental payment for the pump. The DMERC requests written proof from the supplier of maintenance and servicing of the pump.
