The term 'managing employee' is defined as any individual, including a general manager, business manager or administrator, who exercises operational or managerial control over the DMEPOS supplier or who conducts the day-to-day operations of the DMEPOS supplier. For Medicare enrollment purposes, 'managing employee' also includes individuals who are not actual employees of the DMEPOS supplier but, either under contract or through some other arrangement, manage the day-to-day operations of the DMEPOS supplier.
This individual must be included in section 9 of the application and there must be at least one managing employee listed in section 6 of each application. If this is a small business and the owner is the 'managing employee', then mark the check boxes for both owner and managing employee in 9A for the section 9 being completed for the owner.
