CMS has rescinded its controversial DMEPOS "consignment closet" transmittal, which would have prohibited certain arrangements where an enrolled DMEPOS supplier maintains inventory at a practice location which is not owned by the enrolled DMEPOS supplier, but rather, owned by a physician or other health care professional for the purpose of distribution. Specifically CMS states in a revised version of the document  that it is rescinding the September 1, 2009 transmittal, which was scheduled to go into effect March 1. 2010, "to consider other implementation dates."
