In fact, if you are hoping to provide durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supplies (DMEPOS) to Medicare beneficiaries, then you will have to be accredited by an independent accrediting organization (AO).

Especially in competitive markets such as specialty pharmacy and home infusion therapy, it may be wise to consider seeking independent assurance that your business is capable of delivering outstanding patient care.

Of course, there is a price to pay in both time and money, the latter of which starts at around $4,000 for one location for one year or around $8,000 for a three-year accreditation (and goes up from there depending on the AO and the size of your operation). But your business can profit from the benefits as well. You have to decide if those benefits outweigh the costs; our list of the pros and cons of accreditation below can help you make that determination.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  2. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. kudos
