Guidance on Implementing Section 3109 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Revision)

Recently CMS released a revised MLN Matters article providing further information and guidance on implementing Section 3109 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  The article was re-issued on August 27, 2010, to include a reminder of the upcoming DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program and to add a Web link to the Provider/Supplier Accreditation page on the CMS website. That link is in the "Additional Information" section of the article. All other information is the same. View the MLN Matters Article (PDF, 76 KB) for more information.
