What Are Supplier
Standards?
┬зтАп Standards of Business Conduct
┬зтАп 30 Supplier Standards
┬зтАп Not All Apply to DPMs
Supplier Standards 1-5
1. A supplier must be in compliance with all applicable Federal and State
licensure and regulatory requirements and cannot contract with an
individual or entity to provide licensed services. 2. A supplier must provide complete and accurate information on the
DMEPOS supplier application. Any changes to this information must be
reported to the National Supplier Clearinghouse within 30 days. 3. An authorized individual (one whose signature is binding) must sign
the application for billing privileges. 4. A supplier must fill orders from its own inventory, or must contract
with other companies for the purchase of items necessary to fill the
order. A supplier may not contract with any entity that is currently
excluded from the Medicare program, any State health care programs, or
from any other Federal procurement or non-procurement programs. 5. A supplier must advise beneficiaries that they may rent or purchase
inexpensive or routinely purchased durable medical equipment, and of
the purchase option for capped rental equipment. Supplier Standards 6-10
6. A supplier must notify beneficiaries of warranty coverage and honor all
warranties under applicable State law, and repair or replace free of charge
Medicare covered items that are under warranty. 7. A supplier must maintain a physical facility on an appropriate site. This
standard requires that the location is accessible to the public and staffed during
posted hours of business. The location must be at least 200 square feet and
contain space for storing records. 8. A supplier must permit CMS, or its agents to conduct on-site inspections to
ascertain the supplierтАЩs compliance with these standards. The supplier location
must be accessible to beneficiaries during reasonable business hours, and must
maintain a visible sign and posted hours of operation. 9. A supplier must maintain a primary business telephone listed under the name
of the business in a local directory or a toll free number available through
directory assistance. The exclusive use of a beeper, answering machine,
answering service or cell phone during posted business hours is prohibited. 10. A supplier must have comprehensive liability insurance in the amount of at
least $300,000 that covers both the supplierтАЩs place of business and all customers
and employees of the supplier. If the supplier manufactures its own items, this
insurance must also cover product liability and completed operations. Supplier Standards 11-15
11. A supplier must agree not to initiate telephone contact with
beneficiaries, with a few exceptions allowed. This standard
prohibits suppliers from contacting a Medicare beneficiary based
on a physicianтАЩs oral order unless an exception applies. 12. A supplier is responsible for delivery and must instruct
beneficiaries on use of Medicare covered items, and maintain
proof of delivery. 13. A supplier must answer questions and respond to complaints
of beneficiaries, and maintain documentation of such contacts. 14. A supplier must maintain and replace at no charge or repair
directly, or through a service contract with another company,
Medicare-covered items it has rented to beneficiaries. 15. A supplier must accept returns of substandard (less than full
quality for the particular item) or unsuitable items (inappropriate
for the beneficiary at the time it was fitted and rented or sold)
from beneficiaries. Supplier Standards 16-20
16. A supplier must disclose these supplier standards to each beneficiary to whom it
supplies a Medicare-covered item. 17. A supplier must disclose to the government any person having ownership,
financial, or control interest in the supplier. 18. A supplier must not convey or reassign a supplier number; i.e., the supplier may
not sell or allow another entity to use its Medicare billing number. 19. A supplier must have a complaint resolution protocol established to address
beneficiary complaints that relate to these standards. A record of these complaints
must be maintained at the physical facility. 20. Complaint records must include: the name, address, telephone number and health
insurance claim number of the beneficiary, a summary of the complaint, and any
actions taken to resolve it. Supplier Standards 21-25
21.A supplier must agree to furnish CMS any information required
by the Medicare statute and implementing regulations. 22.All suppliers must be accredited by a CMS-approved
accreditation organization in order to receive and retain a supplier
billing number. The accreditation must indicate the specific
products and services, for which the supplier is accredited in order
for the supplier to receive payment of those specific products and
services (except for certain exempt pharmaceuticals).
Implementation Date - October 1, 2009 23. All suppliers must notify their accreditation organization when
a new DMEPOS location is opened. 24. All supplier locations, whether owned or subcontracted, must
meet the DMEPOS quality standards and be separately accredited
in order to bill Medicare. 25. All suppliers must disclose upon enrollment all products and
services, including the addition of new product lines for which
they are seeking accreditation. Supplier Standards 26-30
26. Must meet the surety bond requirements specified in 42 C.F.R. 424.57(c).
Implementation date- May 4, 2009 27. A supplier must obtain oxygen from a state- licensed oxygen supplier. 28. A supplier must maintain ordering and referring documentation consistent with
provisions found in 42 C.F.R. 424.516(f). 29. DMEPOS suppliers are prohibited from sharing a practice location with certain
other Medicare providers and suppliers. 30. DMEPOS suppliers must remain open to the public for a minimum of 30 hours
per week with certain exceptions. WHO SHOULD COMPLETE AND SUBMIT THIS APPLICATIO N

WhatтАЩs a Vendor Contract?тАи
A vendor contract is as simple as a credit application with a
vendor. It stipulates your credit amount/month and the
average time it will take to fill an order.
Why Do I Need Vendor
Contracts?
Supplier Standard 4
тАЬA supplier must fill orders from its own inventory, or
must contract with other companies for the purchase of
items necessary to fill the order. A supplier may not
contract with any entity that is currently excluded from the
Medicare program, any State health care programs, or
from any other Federal procurement or non-procurement
programs.тАЭ тАи
WHAT IS CONSIDERED PERMANENT VISIBLE SIGNAGE IN REGARD TO
SUPPLIER STANDARD 7?
A. The supplier should maintain a permanent visible sign(s) in plain
view and should post hours of operation. The sign must be visible to
the public and posted outside of the facility. If the supplier's place of
business is located within a building complex, the sign(s) must be
visible at the main entrance and/or lobby area of the building and
show the exact location of the supplier within the building. However
the hours can be posted at the entrance of the supplier with a
separate sign. Permanent Signage including the hours of operation
should not be easily removed or detached by weather or a person
who does not have a business need to remove it. Taped paper signs
are not acceptable. Beneficiaries should be able to locate the
supplier and their hours of operation through the use of these
permanent signs without help from the supplier or other parties
