DMEPOS: Suppliers of Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics and Orthocis and Suppliers.
Medical supply companies may be independent or part of a larger health system. They are subject to a vast number of federal, state, and accreditation requirements no matter the structure. According to CMS, DMEPOS suppliers have the highest percentage of improper payment rates compared to other Medicare claim types.1 In part, these improper payment rates are due to the extremely complex and often ambiguous regulatory structure that applies to DMEPOS suppliers. Therefore, it is imperative that medical supply companies establish and maintain a baseline of compliance with these complex standards. While this white paper will focus on Medicare requirements, medical supply companies enrolling in Medicaid programs or contracting with commercial payers should also be mindful of the requirements set out by those respective programs and/or contracts. DMEPOS is split into three different categories. Fill out our form to the right to get our free whitepaper or contact us.
