Mandatory accreditation is here. The Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 requires that every home medical equipment company be accredited to participate in the competitive bidding process.
First 10 Metropolitan Statistical Areas have been named. Then 70 more and the remaining areas throughout the country will be required to become accredited. Finally The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will require each home medical equipment company to be accredited in order to bill the Medicare program.
