We have two announcements of interest to suppliers that are considering participating in the Round 2 and national mail-order competitions of the Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Bidding Program.
First, the Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) has issued a new fact sheet providing antitrust guidance for bidders. To view the fact sheet, please go to the CBIC website at www.dmecompetitivebid.com and select Bidding Suppliers: Round 2 & National Mail-Order and then choose Fact Sheets.
Second, four adjustable seat cushion codes have been removed from the Round 2 standard wheelchair product category. We are in the process of deleting these codes from the educational materials on the CBIC website. We will send a follow-up listserv notice when the updates to the educational materials are complete.
