Girard, Ohio – The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) just released information for the ESRD program, the DME industry, and the competitive bidding program. The ruling proposes changes to bidding and pricing methodologies under the DMEPOS competitive bidding program (CBP); adjustments to DMEPOS Fee Schedule amounts using information from competitive bidding for items furnished on or after January 1, 2019. Beginning on January 1, 2019, beneficiaries may receive DMEPOS items from any willing supplier until CMS provides further information about the DMEPOS CBP in the future.
