The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is required by law to recompete contracts under the Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Bidding Program at least once every three years. The Round 2 and national mail-order program contract periods expire on June 30, 2016. Round 2 Recompete and the national mail-order recompete contracts are scheduled to become effective  on July 1, 2016, and will expire on December 31, 2018. 

CMS is conducting the Round 2 Recompete for seven product categories in the same geographic areas that were included in Round 2. Most Round 2 Recompete metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) have one competitive bidding area (CBA). However, the three largest MSAs (Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York) are subdivided into multiple CBAs, and CBAs in multi-state MSAs have been defined so that there are no multi-state CBAs. As a result, there are 117 CBAs in the Round 2 Recompete.

CMS is also conducting the national mail-order recompete for diabetic testing supplies at the same time as the Round 2 Recompete. The national mail-order recompete CBA includes all parts of the United States, including the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa.
