DMEPOS suppliers must respond to development requests made by the National Supplier Clearinghouse (NSC) within 30 days. This development time frame is in accordance with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service publishing a final rule titled, "Appeals of CMS or CMS Contractor Determinations When a Provider or Supplier Fails to Meet the Requirements for Medicare Billing Privileges (CMS 6003-F)" in the Federal Register. This final rule directs Medicare contractors to reject an enrollment application when a provider or supplier fails to provide missing information or documentation within 30 days of a contractor’s request for additional information. If a supplier’s application is closed or the Medicare billing privileges are deactivated due to non-response of a development request, the supplier does not have appeal rights and must reapply to the NSC for Medicare billing privileges using the CMS-855S enrollment application or through Internet-based PECOS.
