Dentist DMEPOS Bond Requirement

What’s the New Surety Bond Requirement?

Dentists who provide durable medical equipment and participate in a CMS billing program now must obtain a DMEPOS surety bond and file it with the Center Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The surety bond must meet the following requirements below:

  • The bond must be written by a T-Listed surety
  • The bond must be no less than $50,000
  • The bond must be obtained within sixty days of receipt of a formal notification from the CMS.

Failure to obtain a bond within the required time frame will lead to the revocation of the dentist’s Medicare Provider Transaction Access Number (PTAN).
