Notes:
A - Suppliers including Pharmacies may be exempt from the Home Medical Equipment License if they do not deliver or mail any devices to a person’s residence. Per Tenn. Code Ann. § 68-11-201(16)(B), the Home Medical Equipment License does not apply to: (1) Medical equipment used or dispensed in the normal course of treating patients by hospitals and nursing facilities as defined in this part, other than medical equipment delivered or dispensed by a separate unit or subsidiary corporation of a hospital or nursing facility or agency that is in the business of delivering home medical equipment to an individual’s residence; (2) Upper and lower extremity prosthetics and related orthotics; (3) Canes, crutches, walkers, and bathtub grab bars; (4) Medical equipment provided through a physician’s office incident to a physician’s service, other than delivering medical equipment to the resident’s home; (5) Equipment provided by a pharmacist which is used to administer drugs or medicine that can be dispensed only by a pharmacist; (6) Enteral and parenteral equipment provided by a pharmacist.

C - A license to provide custom orthotics or prosthetics is not required of a health care practitioner licensed under Title 63, such as a physician or nurse who is acting within his or her lawful scope of practice. A full list of the state’s exemptions can be found at https://publications.tnsosfiles.com/rules/1155/1155-04.20170723.pdf.

E - A Registered Respiratory Therapist License is also acceptable. Any instruction and education of the patient regarding the prescription and clinical use of the equipment must be performed by a Tennessee Licensed Certified Respiratory Therapist, Licensed Registered Respiratory Therapist or another authorized practitioner such as a physician or registered nurse. A supplier may contract with a Tennessee qualified individual to provide this service to the patient. Delivery, repair or maintenance of respiratory equipment does not constitute the practice of respiratory care. Edited 10/31/16.

F - In addition, by both law and regulation, in order to be licensed to ship medical equipment into this State, a provider must maintain an office in Tennessee. That provision is located in 1200-08-29-.06(5) and states: (5) Physical Location. Each parent and/or branch shall: (a) Be located in Tennessee; (b) Be staffed during normal business hours and have a working telephone; (c) Be used for the dispensing, servicing, and storage of home medical equipment or related health care services; (d) Meet all local zoning requirements; and (e) Have all required current licenses and/or permits conspicuously posted in the agency.

G - Tennessee does not issue an orthotic fitter license but requires certification from a recognized agency like ABC or BOC.

H - The Distributor license allows for the distribution of medical gases to patients. (Effective: 02/21/1992; Added: 10/09/2013)
