For a listing of the product categories, competitive bidding areas, timeline, and other important bidding information, please visit the Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) website at dmecompetitivebid.com. We also encourage you to register on the CBIC website to receive E-mail Updates about the program.

As a reminder, the CBIC is the official information source for bidders and bidder education. CMS cautions bidding suppliers about potential inaccurate information concerning the Competitive Bidding Program posted on websites other than the CBIC website. Suppliers that rely on this information in the preparation or submission of their bids could be at risk of submitting a non-compliant bid.

The CBIC participates in numerous educational events to assist stakeholders in understanding the rules that govern the DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program. Visit the CBIC website for a listing and schedule of educational events under the Educational Information section of the Round 1 2017 page.

In addition to viewing the information on the CBIC website, suppliers are encouraged to call the CBIC customer service center toll-free at 877-577-5331 between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. prevailing Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.
