FYI.. CMS advises HME providers who choose NOT to obtain accreditation at this time, to submit an amended CMS-855S application reflecting their voluntary termination. By filing this application, the HME provider will not be revoked and subsequently barred from the Medicare Program. Phamacies that choose NOT to become accreditated but wish to remain a DMEPOS provider for drugs and biologicals should submit an amended CMS 855S only. In addition to updating the application, providers should ensure that they have checked the appropiate boxes in Section 2(c) to reflect which drugs and biologicals they will provide to beneficiaries.
