Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) has announced that registration is now open to all suppliers interested in participating in the Round 1 Recompete of the Medicare Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (“DMEPOS”) Competitive Bidding Program.

Suppliers that do not register will not be able to bid. (more…)
