The house today voted to override Bush’s veto of the Medicare bill which contained a postponement of national competitive bidding. If the Senate follows their previous vote DME providers will get an 18-24 month reprieve. I hasten to point out that accreditation is affected only for those in the 70 MSA who were required to apply by July 21st and get accredited by January of 2009. The final date of September 30, 2009 is still in place and any new providers will require accreditation before they can get a supplier number.

Competitive bidding is postponed due to the west of the time on part of the bidders. The sequence of the bidding and service review is marked for the competitive bidding for the bidders in all forms and charges for the candidates.
