What is a DMEPOS Surety Bond?

A DMEPOS surety bond is a bond issued by an entity (the surety) guaranteeing that a DMEPOS supplier will fulfill an obligation or series of obligations to a third party (the Medicare program). If the obligation is not met, the third party will recover its losses via the bond. DMEPOS suppliers enrolled in Medicare are required to obtain and submit a $50,000 bond for each National Provider Identifier (NPI) to the NSC.

See the NSC’s Surety Bond FAQ for more information or visit the US Department of Treasury website for a list of certified surety bond companies.
