The Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) has delayed the initial deadline for contract suppliers of durable medical equipment and prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS) in competitive bidding areas to submit manufacturer and model information regarding items furnished to Medicare beneficiaries. Specifically, while the new “Form C” usually will be due 10 calendar days after the end of each calendar quarter, the CBIC is extending the deadline for submitting the first Form C until April 29, 2011.
