Description
 
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 rebids 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.
