Medicare’s Equipment and Supplies Program in Your Community

If you need certain medical equipment and supplies, such as oxygen, walkers and wheelchairs, you should know that Medicare is continuing its successful Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Bidding Program, which has been in place for many areas throughout the country. This program is an essential tool to help Medicare set appropriate payment rates for DMEPOS items, save money for beneficiaries and taxpayers, and ensure access to quality items.

The links below contain the latest information about the program.
