Medicare DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program
We won and that means you won too!
Overview of the DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program
The DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program was mandated by Congress through the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA). The statute requires that Medicare replace the current fee schedule payment methodology for selected Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies (DMEPOS) items with a competitive bid process. The intent is to improve the effectiveness of the Medicare methodology for setting DMEPOS payment amounts, which will reduce beneficiary out-of-pocket expenses and save the Medicare program money while ensuring beneficiary access to quality items and services.
Under the program, a competition among suppliers who operate in a particular competitive bidding area (CBA) is conducted. Suppliers are required to submit a bid for selected products. Contracts are awarded to the Medicare suppliers who offer the best price and meet applicable quality and financial standards. When the program becomes effective, beneficiaries with Original Medicare who permanently reside in a Competitive Bidding Area (CBA), or obtain products while travelling to / visiting a CBA, then the beneficiary must go to a contract supplier to obtain your Durable Medical Equipment (DME).
You can confirm if you are located within a CBA or locate a provider by calling
