HME surety bonds

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Delay in finalization of bonding requirements for home medical equipment suppliers results from efforts under way between Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and the Health Care Financing Administration to revamp similar requirements for home health agencies ("The Gray Sheet" July 6, p. 23), according to HCFA staffers. Under a proposed rule issued in January, HCFA would require HME suppliers to obtain a surety bond that is the greater of $50,000 or 15% of the annual amount reimbursed by Medicare up to a $3 mil. ceiling ("The Gray Sheet" Jan. 26, I&W-4)
