2013-07 DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program: 1 July Implementation- Supplier Resources





DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program: July 1 Implementation- Supplier Resources
  • Educational Resources Reminder
    Round 2 of the DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program will go into effect in 91 Metropolitan Statistical Areas on July 1, 2013. Medicare also will implement a national mail-order program for diabetic testing supplies on July 1, 2013. When
    the program becomes effective in a competitive bidding area, beneficiaries with Original Medicare who obtain competitively bid items in the area must obtain these items from a contract supplier in order for Medicare to pay, unless
    an exception applies. Educational resources for suppliers are available on the CMS website. Materials to assist you with beneficiary inquiries about the program are also available.
  • CBIC Liaison Reminder
    Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) liaisons are available to assist suppliers, referral agents, and other key stakeholders with questions and concerns about the Medicare DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program. The
    liaisons can provide assistance with issues such as:
    • the quality of services or items,
    • suspected fraud or abuse,
    • guidelines on particular policies,
    • information on regulations,
    • general information about the program, and
    • educational materials.
    There is a dedicated CBIC liaison assigned in each of several regional geographic territories consisting of Round 1, Round 2, and national mail-order competitive bidding areas. For more information and to see a listing of the CBIC liaisons, visit the DMEPOS Competitive Bidding website.
