Enteral care kits contain all the necessary supplies for the enteral patient using the syringe, gravity, or pump method of nutrient administration. Parenteral nutrition care kits and their components are considered all-inclusive items necessary to administer therapy during a monthly period.

The DMERC compares the enteral feeding care kits on the claim with the method of administration indicated on the CMN.

The allowance for the amount paid for a gravity-fed care kit is paid when a pump feeding kit is billed in the absence of documentation or unacceptable documentation for a pump.

Payment is denied for additional components included as part of the PEN supply kit.
