Among various requirements the law stipulates that providers of DMEPOS (durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies -- such as wheelchairs and oxygen delivery systems, for example) must meet new quality standards in order to bill the Medicare Part B program.

Later that year, CMS announced the list of organizations that are now authorized to accredit such healthcare organizations as meeting the standards. One such organization is The Joint Commission (JCAHO).

Part 1 of this webinar provides references to CMS rules and key announcements on this topic. It also presents in detail the specific CMS quality standards for "Business Services" and for "Product-Specific Services" that must be met.
