Illinois DMEPOS Accreditation Attorney

Lawyer and Pharmacist Helping Pharmacies Receive Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies Accreditation

Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) accreditation was put in place to ensure quality standards compliance from medical suppliers who wish to receive payment from Medicare Part B. Upon successful certification, pharmacies are issued a supplier billing number to facilitate these payments.

Pharmacy operators who want to sell products listed under the DMEPOS classification must first submit an application then pass a complete and thorough review by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). This includes an extensive examination of all procedures and policies, verification of pharmacist and pharmacy licensure, and an unannounced on-site visit and business analysis.

If you want to offer DMEPOS products to your customers, skilled guidance from a pharmacy industry standards consulting lawyer from The Law Offices of Joseph J. Bogdan, LLC can prove invaluable. Joseph Bogdan is a skilled attorney, registered pharmacist, and trusted pharmacy consultant who represents healthcare professionals to state boards and federal agencies, including the Illinois Board of Pharmacy. His areas of practice include the purchase and sale of pharmacies and pharmacy benefit manager audits. His vast experience and industry knowledge give you a distinct advantage in securing the accreditation necessary to provide this valuable service to members of the public.

How to Become DMEPOS Accredited

Joseph Bogdan will help you achieve full adherence to mandated standards and prepare for the eventual NABP on-site inspection. Prior to your application submission, he can provide the blueprint to navigate the accreditation process. He will recommend any necessary changes in services or practices, including employee training programs.

DMEPOS Supplier Standards

Product and device quality requirements are established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and are maintained so beneficiaries can receive appropriate and dependable products. Medical items subject to these standards include:

  • Prosthetic devices (artificial limbs);
  • Orthotics (braces);
  • Therapeutic shoes, diabetic shoes, and inserts;
  • Home dialysis equipment and supplies;
  • Crutches, canes, and walkers;
  • Respiratory assistance devices;
  • Insulin infusion pumps;
  • Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) devices and supplies;
  • Cold and heat applications;
  • Nebulizer equipment and supplies;
  • Parenteral and enteral nutrients;
  • Seat lifts;
  • Diabetic testing supplies;
  • Catheters; and
  • Ostomy supplies.

Once you are fully accredited, you may be able to also participate in the DMEPOS competitive bidding program, which reduces costs and improves access to high-quality products for Medicare beneficiaries. Payment amounts are decided through bids from DMEPOS suppliers, which also reduces the financial burden on the Medicare system and taxpayers.
