What is pharmacy accreditation exemption for DMEPOS and how do I qualify?

Pharmacies that meet certain criteria may file an accreditation exemption statement with the appropriate Enrollment Contractor to seek exemption from the DMEPOS accreditation requirement. Pharmacy exemption information can be found on the CMS Fact Sheet.

The Enrollment Contractors recommend that “you continue accreditation until you have received notice of acceptance of your accreditation exemption statement” because “if you are no longer accredited and do not qualify for the exemption, your Medicare billing privileges will be revoked.” We are not involved in the pharmacy exemption process and questions regarding pharmacy exemption should be directed to the applicable Enrollment Contractor.

If you have received pharmacy exemption status from the Enrollment Contractor and no longer want to remain DMEPOS-accredited, inform us in writing.
