Similar to Part A services, facilities can bill Part B ostomy, urological, and tracheostomy supplies directly to their fiscal intermediary (FI) or Medicare administrative contractor (MAC).

Since SNF business offices are familiar with this process, billing for these supplies is not as labor-intensive and time-consuming as billing for other Part B items. Ultimately, billing Part B ostomy, urological, and tracheostomy supplies can generate revenue for a SNF without the headaches that can accompany other supply billing procedures.
