Suppliers, billers, and vendors: Certificates of medical necessity (CMNs) and the durable medical equipment (DME) information forms (DIFs) are discontinued effective January 1, 2023. As a result, you can’t submit CMN and DIF forms or their electronic claim data elements with claims for dates of service on or after January 1, 2023. Suppliers must continue to submit CMN and DIF information for claims with dates of service before January 1, 2023.
