DMEPOS Supplier Standards

All Medicare DMEPOS suppliers must be in compliance with these Supplier Standards in order to obtain and retain their billing privileges. These standards, in their entirety, are listed in 42 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), part 424, section 57.

On August 27, 2010, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services published a proposed rule titled, "Medicare Program; Establishing Additional Medicare Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Suppliers (DMEPOS) Supplier Enrollment Safeguards" (CMS-6036-F) in the Federal Register. The new supplier standards are effective on September 27, 2010.
