Ordering and Certifying Documentation for DMEPOS Suppliers

Recently, CMS published a MedLearn Matters Article to provide instructions on the enforcement of 424.516 (f)(1) and (f)(2), regarding the maintenance requirements of ordering and certifying documentation. In accordance with the regulation, effective October 1, 2012, DMEPOS suppliers must maintain documentation of 7 years from the date of service and upon the request of CMS or a Medicare contractor, provide access to that documentation. For complete details on this requirement, suppliers can view the MedLearn Matters Article (PDF, 101 KB) found on the CMS website.
