Medicare DMEPOS Bonds
The Federal Government recently passed legislation requiring Suppliers of Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) to secure a bond in the amount of $50,000. Any new suppliers seeking enrollment into the program are required to purchase the bond by May 4, 2009. The existing Medicare DMEPOS suppliers must meet the bond requirement by October 2, 2009. The bonds will need to be filed with the National Supplier Clearinghouse located in Columbia, South Carolina. The Center for Medicare Services will soon provide suppliers with more information about filing the bonds.
