DMEPOS Suppliers Beware: Operational Changes May Be Required to Avoid Revocation

Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Supplier Enrollment Safeguards [PDF]," which expand and clarify the supplier standards. Although CMS certified that "this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial
