California Medicare Bond / California Medicaid Bond






Medicare and Medicaid medical suppliers in California and nationwide are regulated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

To be approved as a medical supplier, a business must first be authorized by this federal entity.

Since California operates both a Medicare and its own Medicaid program (not all states offer Medicaid) , this single license allows for the supplying of medical equipment to both medical groups.


What DMEPOS is:



DMEPOS is an acronym which stands for: durable, medical, equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies—which is exactly the equipment and other items which are sold by medical suppliers under this program.



California DMEPOS Bond



The California DMEPOS bond is interchangeably referred to as a California Medicare bond, and a California Medicaid bond; they both mean the same.

The bond is required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The bond is required primarily to as a stop-gap measure to prevent criminal, fraudulent, and willfully negligent acts of malfeasance on the part of medical suppliers.

In the early 2000’s, there were instances in which Medicare and Medicaid had been over billed in the many millions of dollars. The problem had become both systemic and on a national level.

Consequently, in 2009  this bond was first required and it has been required since then.



$50,000 California DMEPOS Bond



A DMEPOS surety bond has a minimum amount of $50,000.

We refer to this as the floor amount of the bond, because while it cannot be any lower than $50,000, the bond may be higher.

The required bond amount will be determined by the number of National Provider Identifiers (NPI’s) of a business. A business with 10 NPI’s would be required to post a $500,000 surety bond for all locations.


Exemptions from the California DMEPOS bond


Manufacturers of medical equipment such as prosthetics and orthotics are exempt from this bond requirement, as are suppliers who are government-owned.

Finally, physicans who supply medical equipment in the course of their business, and to their patients are likewise exempt from the bond requirement.



The Cost of a California DMEPOS Bond



Applicants will pay nowhere near the $50,000 face bond amount for this surety bond.

The cost of the surety bond will, ultimately, be determined by the following:

  • An applicant’s credit score;
  • The total amount of the surety bond required (while the amount has a threshold of $50,000, the number of NPI’s will determine the amount of the surety bond required. The DMEPOS bond amounts are in increments of $50,000).
