Will the NSC or its contractor conduct site visits with regard to accreditation?


Answer:

No. Suppliers must be accredited before submitting an 855S to the National Supplier Clearinghouse (NSC). The accrediting organizations, which are appointed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), ensure DMEPOS suppliers meet the quality standards. Suppliers can expect to receive a site visit or survey from the accrediting organization they have applied to as part of the accreditation process.
