CRE Petitions CMS to Publish the Secretary’s “Financial Standards” for the Medicare DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program
CRE has provided CMS with a mechanism for making the Competitive Bidding Workable, simply by adopting the Small Business Enhancement Option.
Recognizing the statutory requirement that CMS proceed with a competitive bidding program, CRE has developed the Small Business Enhancement Option.
This option has three components:
l. A “single payment amount” which would be determined by the competitive bidding process.
2. Any qualified small business, as defined by SBA, would be able to supply product and services at the “single payment” amount.
