For those Compliance Team customers who recently received Medicare billing privileges WITHOUT completing accreditation.

  • Require the DMEPOS AO to conduct an in-person survey, virtual survey, or a combination of both depending on the state’s reopening plan within 90 days of you receiving the NSC letter.
  • The Compliance Team continues to evaluate the COVID-19 travel advisories within each state for the safety of you, your employees, related families as well as all of ours.
