What is the difference between the Medicare DMEPOS Supplier Standards and the CMS DMEPOS Quality Standards?
Medicare DMEPOS suppliers must be compliant with all Medicare DMEPOS Supplier Standards in order to obtain their Medicare Billing Number and retain billing privileges. The NSC is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Supplier Standards.
DMEPOS suppliers must demonstrate compliance with the CMS Quality Standards and other corresponding Accreditation Organization Program Standards in order to be awarded DMEPOS accreditation.
Accredited DMEPOS suppliers must therefore comply with both the Medicare DMEPOS Supplier Standards and the CMS Quality Standards.
