CMS Announces Timeline for the DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Round 2 Recompete/National Mail-Order Recompete
DMEPOS Competitive Bidding - Bidder Education Program Begins
CMS has announced the bidding timeline for the Round 2 Recompete and the national mail-order recompete of the Medicare Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Bidding Program.
Bidder Education Program
CMS has also launched a comprehensive bidder education program. This program is designed to ensure that DMEPOS suppliers interested in bidding receive the information and assistance they need to submit complete bids in a timely manner.
The CBIC is the official information source for bidders and the focal point for bidder education. The CBIC website features an array of important and helpful information for suppliers, including bidding rules, user guides, fact sheets, checklists, and bid preparation worksheets.
The education program also includes a new video series to assist and guide bidders through the entire bidding process. The short – but helpful and engaging – instructional videos are posted on the CBIC website. When a new video is posted, the CBIC will announce its availability through a CBIC e-mail update. To sign up to receive video announcements and other key registration and bidding information, subscribe to CBIC E-Mail Updates.
In addition to viewing the information on the CBIC website, suppliers are encouraged to call the CBIC customer service center toll-free, at 1-877-577-5331, with questions. During registration and bidding periods, the customer service center will be open from 9am to 9pm ET.
