Walmart and Canes?
I was in a Walmart location the other day and had a thought about them selling canes. Since they are CB winners (Walkers in the Atlanta CBA and who know what countless other bids elsewhere) they obviously have a NPI # to bill medicare...

My question is this, how do they get away with selling canes and other medicare items and not get ABN's?

Does Medicare not care? Should I be getting ABN's on all my retail canes?

Yes, both Wal-Mart and MRS should be getting ABNs at retail. We operate a dozen retail locations and execute them all day long!

The one way around it is if you have an item which is not covered by Medicare.

We are getting them, just curious how the "big boxes" are getting away without them.
