Extension of the 2013 Annual Participation Enrollment Program for DMEPOS Suppliers


It has come to the attention of the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that some suppliers of durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS) were unaware that the 2013 Annual Participation Enrollment Program for suppliers of DMEPOS was extended through February 15, 2013. Consequently, CMS is further extending the 2013 Annual Enrollment Program for DMEPOS suppliers through April 15, 2013.

The effective date for any participation status changes elected by suppliers during the extension remains January 1, 2013. This extension is prospective only for new claims received on/after the effective date of the supplier's participation election. Therefore there will be no retroactive claims reprocessing. Suppliers requesting a change in participation status shall mail their requests to:

National Supplier Clearinghouse

Columbia, SC 29202-3142
