Are DMEPOS Suppliers required to deliver to the beneficiary?

Yes. The supplier standards dictate DMEPOS suppliers requiring accreditation meet the quality standards, and the quality standards specifically require the delivery of items to the beneficiary. Section II: Supplier Product Specific Service Requirements of the quality standards requires suppliers to “deliver and set up, or coordinate set-up with another supplier, all equipment and item(s) in a timely manner as agreed upon by the beneficiary and/or caregiver and prescribing physician.” The quality standards are enforced by the nine CMS deemed accrediting organizations, and suppliers that are not compliant may have their Medicare billing privileges terminated.
