Recently, CMS released Change Request 6282 (CR 6282) announcing regulatory revisions pertinent for suppliers of durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supplies (DMEPOS). CR 6282 reinforced supplier time frames for submitting developmental information to the NSC for application processing as well as stressed the effective dates of certain type of revocations. In addition CR 6282 informed DMEPOS suppliers that the NSC will maintain alert codes received from the DME MACs and the Program Integrity Contractors. Suppliers exempted from accreditation are reminded that products/services that fall outside of the scope of specialty will require accreditation to obtain/maintain Medicare billing privileges.
