DME, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies Competitive Bidding Program: Temporary Gap

December 4, 2018

All Medicare Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, & Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Bidding Program (CBP) contracts expire on December 31, 2018. Starting January 1, 2019, there will be a temporary gap in the DMEPOS CBP that CMS expects will last until December 31, 2020.

During the temporary gap, any Medicare enrolled DMEPOS supplier may furnish DMEPOS items and services to people with Medicare. In most cases, people with Medicare won’t need to switch suppliers on or after January 1, 2019.
