DMEPOS Site Inspection Regulation Reminders

The National Supplier Clearinghouse (NSC) is the entity charged with the responsibility of performing site inspections of DME suppliers and to ensure suppliers comply with the supplier standards found at 42 CFR 424.57. As part of the site visit the NSC reviews a small random sample of beneficiary records to ensure suppliers maintain adequate delivery documentation in accordance with 42 CFR 424.57(c) (12). Furthermore, DMEPOS suppliers must also comply with provisions found at 42 CFR 424.516 (f) that require them to maintain documentation related to the ordering of DMEPOS products/services for a period of 7 years from the date of service.

Failure to adhere to both reporting requirements may result in the revocation of the DMEPOS billing privileges.
