Pennsylvania DMEPOS

 

 

 

DMEPOS is a funny acronym which has a serious meaning. It means durable, medical, equipment, prosthetics, suppliers.

This federally-mandated program allows you to provide medical supplies to Pennsylvania residents who are in Medicare or Medicaid.

The program is overseen by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services,  CMS.

The CMS is also the obligee for this surety bond. This means that they are the organization requiring you to obtain the Pennsylvania DMEPOS bond.

Maintaining surety is a prerequisite for participation in the program.

 

 

 

Pennsylvania DMEPOS Bond: The Amount Required

 

 

 

The Pennsylvania DMEPOS bond is a $50,000 surety bond. The incremental amount for this surety bond is also $50,000.

The amount of surety bond you are required to purchase will correspond with the number of National Provider Identifier (NPI) you maintain.

If you have 5 NPI numbers, then you would be required to obtain a $250,000 DMEPOS bond.

In this example, you would purchase one $250,000 DMEPOS surety bond, not 5 separate $50,000 bonds.

Exceptions for the number of DMEPOS bonds may apply for sole proprietors; however, you will want to confirm any bond requirements directly with the CMS.

 

 

 

Pennsylvania DMEPOS Bond: The Purpose

 

 

 

The purpose of your DMEPOS surety bond is to act as a financial guarantee that you will comply with all legal statutes which regulate your professional conduct.

The bond protects others, not your medical supplying company, from acts of fraud, theft, and criminal malfeasance as it relates to your professional duties.

In fact, in 2009, the DMEPOS bond was enacted after systemic abuse of Medicare and Medicaid by unscrupulous suppliers had been uncovered. Such abuse of the program had been going on for years.

In this connection, if you have had an adverse action taken against you by CMS within the prior 10 years, you will be required to obtain an additional $50,000 bond for each NPI location.

In other words, you will be required to post a $100,000 surety bond for each NPI location.

 

 

 

Premium and Duration For Your Pennsylvania DMEPOS Bond:

 

 

 

As an applicant for the DMEPOS bond, you can take comfort that despite the bond’s large amount, the premium — depending on your application and credit — may be quite reasonable.

A $100,000 DMEPOS bond may cost as little as $500 annually; a $500,000 DMEPOS bond may cost as little as $2,500 annually.

The amount you will pay, however, will be determined by:

  • The amount of surety bond you are required to purchase;
  • Information provided on the application;
  • A standard credit check.

Once the bond has been issued, the premium renews annually. The bond must be maintained at all times to remain a participant in the CMS DMEPOS program.

AmeriPro Surety Bonds will work to find you the best surety bond pricing, should this be necessary.
