Suppliers bidding in Round 2 and/or the national mail-order competition of the Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies Competitive Bidding Programs must submit hardcopy financial documents on or before Wednesday, Feb. 29 to qualify for the covered document review process.
Under this process, if a supplier submits its financial documents on or before the Covered Document Review Date (CDRD), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid will notify suppliers if any of their financial documents are missing. Suppliers with missing documents will be notified within 90 days of the CDRD, and they will be allowed to submit the missing documents within 10 business days of the notification. Bidders who do not meet the CDRD will not be allowed to submit any corrected paperwork.
The review process determines if there are any missing documents, but it will not indicate whether the received documents are correct, acceptable or accurate.
