BALTIMORE – CMS seems to have left no stone unturned when it comes to the products included in a “recompete” of Round 1 of competitive bidding, say industry stakeholders.
The Round 2 product categories comprised about 200 codes; the Round 1 “recompete” product categories comprise just more than 300 codes.
“It’s pretty much everything under the sun that a typical DME uses,” said Rob Brant, founder of AMEPA. “I don’t think there’s anything they left out except for orthotics.”
