DMEPOS Accreditation: The Ultimate Guide

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.
