CMS Announces DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Payment Amounts for Round 1 Recompete

On October 1, 2013, CMS announced the single payment amounts for the Round 1 Recompete of the Medicare Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Bidding Program and began offering contracts to successful bidders.

CMS is required by law to recompete contracts under the DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program at least once every three years. The Round 1 Rebid contracts will expire on December 31, 2013. CMS plans to announce the contract suppliers this fall, and the Round 1 Recompete contracts and prices are scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2014.

For additional information, visit the Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) website.
