DMEPOS Accreditation: The Ultimate Guide

Overwhelmed and feel like you need help completing this? I'm now offering consulting services and can help you with this application.

In order for pharmacies to bill Medicare Part B for items like diabetic testing supplies, oral chemotherapy and immune suppressants, and all DME, they must first become an accredited provider of Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS).

This process is overwhelming, and for the first-time applicant it can be all-too-easy to make mistakes that lead to delays in processing the application. However, not becoming an accredited provider could mean thousands per year in lost business; in addition to losing the business from the products you could bill through Medicare B, you could also lose the accompanying prescriptions that patients will take elsewhere because they want to get everything in the same place.

For these reasons it is a really good idea to obtain DMEPOS accreditation.

You can also apply to only bill non-accredited products with it, which include oral chemotherapy, nebulized solutions, and immunosuppressants.

When I did this the first time I made tons of mistakes, which is why I’m writing this post: so you can avoid everything I did.

This guide take you step-by-step, through each part of the process and each page of the application, so you can get set up as quickly and easily as possible.
