The DMEPOS Site Visit Process

The DMEPOS Site Visit Process
 
To many suppliers, site visits are among the more daunting events that occur during the enrollment process.  The site visit along with the application and supporting documentation are considered in making a determination to issue, deny or revoke a supplier's billing privileges.

It is also important to note the DMEPOS site visit process is a completely separate process from accreditation. The NSC and the accrediting organizations appointed by CMS are enforcing two different sets of standards.  The NSC will not conduct site visit with regards to the accreditation process.  Suppliers can expect to receive site visits or surveys from both the NSC and the accrediting organizations.

Site Visits:
  • Are a tool used by the NSC to assist in making a determination as to whether or not a supplier is in compliance with the Medicare DMEPOS supplier standards
  • Are conducted in all fifty states and territories
  • Are completed for initial applications, reenrollments and reactivations
  • Can and will be conducted at any time if deemed necessary
