Medicare: Bidding Results from CMSäó»s Durable Medical Equipment Competitive Bidding Program
Kathleen M. King (au)
To achieve Medicare savings for durable medical equipment (DME), the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 required that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) implement the competitive bidding program (CBP) for certain DME. The first completed CBP round -- the round 1 rebid -- operated in nine competitive bidding areas. CMS reported total savings of more than $580 million at the end of the round 1 rebidäó»s 3-year term due to lower payments and decreased utilization. This report examines (1) bidding process results for the round 1 recompete, round 2, and national mail-order program, and how they compare to the concluded round 1 rebid results; and (2) how single payment amounts (SPAs) for selected Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes common to the round 1 rebid, round 1 recompete, round 2, and national mail-order program compare. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
