What is the definition of a managing employee?

The term 'managing employee' is defined as any individual, including a general manager, business manager or administrator, who exercises operational or managerial control over the DMEPOS supplier or who conducts the day-to-day operations of the DMEPOS supplier. For Medicare enrollment purposes, 'managing employee' also includes individuals who are not actual employees of the DMEPOS supplier but, either under contract or through some other arrangement, manage the day-to-day operations of the DMEPOS supplier.

There must be at least one managing employee listed in section 9 of the application. If this is a small business and the owner is the 'managing employee', then mark the boxes for both owner and managing employee in section 9A.
