ASK THE BUSINESS LICENSE GURU

By David Yount

Question:

“We are a pediatric therapy clinic where we do speech, occupational, and physical therapy in Wisconsin. We would like to order splints for clients and bill their private insurance. Do we need a DME license?”

Answer:

Not being able to dispense Durable Medical Equipment (DME) from your office could result in a loss of revenue for your practice. Having the ability to dispense supplies to your clients is a convenience to your patients when they do not have to take their prescription elsewhere to receive those additional series. It is important before jumping into offering this service that you make sure that you are compliant with the local laws on DME licenses before selling any products to clients. The failure to be properly license could result in fines to your business or a tarnished business reputation. The State of Wisconsin does not require a Durable Medical Equipment License. However, if your business is selling durable medical equipment in WI, you may still be required to comply with other licensing laws at the state or local level
