As reported by HME News on November 3, 2010:
“The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded 1,217 DMEPOS competitive bidding program contracts with 356 suppliers. The contract suppliers have 662 locations to serve Medicare beneficiaries in these competitive bidding areas. All contract suppliers were required to comply with Medicare enrollment rules, be licensed and accredited, and meet financial standards.
Because beneficiaries pay 20 percent coinsurance on the payment amount for DMEPOS, they will directly benefit from the lower prices. Based on bids submitted by these suppliers, beneficiaries and Medicare will see prices, on average, 32 percent lower than Medicare currently pays for the same items.”
