Medicare: CMS Working to Address Problems from Round 1 of the Durable Medical Equipment Competitive Bidding Program
Kathleen M. King (au)
In 2007, Medicare spent $8.3 billion for durable medical equipment (DME) and related supplies. To reduce spending, the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA) required that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) phase in a competitive bidding program (CBP) for DME and other items. DME suppliers began bidding in round 1 of the CBP in May 2007. After contracts were awarded, the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 was enacted in July 2008. This report examined: (1) the results of CBP round 1; (2) the major challenges CMS had in conducting CBP round 1; and (3) the steps CMS has taken to improve future CBP rounds. Charts and tables.
