Learn more about the DMEPOS Medicare Surety Bond

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have issued final regulations that require most existing DMEPOS suppliers to have a surety bond in place by October 2, 2009. New provider locations will need a surety bond when they file the CMS 855s with the National Supplier Clearinghouse (NSC).

This Medicare surety bond is required for all providers with a National Provider Identifier (NPI) number, and every NPI number will be required to have at least a $50,000 surety bond.

There are few exceptions to the Medicare Surety Bond and it is important to determine if you qualify for an exception.
