Change Request 6854 Clarifies Reporting of Surety Bond Changes

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released information that clarifies the situations in which certain DMEPOS surety bond changes must be reported to the National Supplier Clearinghouse (NSC). A DMEPOS supplier must submit an addendum to the existing bond (or, if the supplier prefers, a new bond) to the NSC in the following instances: (1) a change in bond terms, (2) a change in the bond amount, or (3) a location on a bond covering multiple non-chain locations is being added or deleted. For more information about Change Request 6854 or for the MLN Matters article in its entirety, read (PDF, 66 KB).
