A DME or DMEPOS bond is required for suppliers of durable medical equipment, orthotics, prosthetics, and supplies. The term “supplier” is defined an individual or entity, including a Part A provider such as a physician, that rents or sells Part B covered DMEPOS items to Medicare beneficiaries and that meet the DMEPOS supplier standards set forth in the Federal Register (42 CFR 424).
The term durable medical equipment is defined as prosthetic devices which replace all or part of an internal body organ (including supplies directly related to colostomy care including colostomy bags), the replacement of devices, or supplies such as a pair of conventional eyeglasses or contact lenses furnished after a cataract surgery that had intraocular lens inserted.
