Accreditation Extension

September 30, 2009

Active bill in Congress

H.R. 3663: To amend title XVIII of the Social Security Act to delay the date on which the accreditation requirement under the Medicare Program applies to suppliers of durable medical equipment that are pharmacies.

I guess pharmacies are a special group. What about the rest of us?

Where are the lobbyist for the locally owned and operated DME suppliers?

    Forget the extension! CMS mandated that ALL DME and Pharmacy be accredited. I was at the front during our accreditation process. Bottom line: It was difficult but not impossible. Why should anyone be granted an extension at this point? We were all allotted the same time frame. Some complied, some did not. Why should they slide?
