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


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.
