CMS has published a final rule correcting a technical error in its January 2, 2009 final rule implementing surety bond requirements for certain Medicare suppliers of durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS). In a related development, CMS has updated the Medicare Program Integrity Manual to incorporate regulatory requirements that certain DMEPOS suppliers obtain a surety bond as a prerequisite for enrolling and maintaining one’s enrollment in the Medicare program.
