The National Supplier Clearinghouse (NSC), the gatekeeper for billing relationships with Medicare, is conducting surprise on-site inspections of home medical equipment companies. The goal is to see if the participation rules, also known as supplier standards are being met.

Accreditation organizations also review Medicare’s requirements but from a slightly different perspective called “quality standards.” How will these reviews affect your business?
