Attention: test the sidewide alert

How often will DMEPOS surveys be performed?

CMS requires that DMEPOS suppliers undergo an unannounced survey once every three years following accreditation to evaluate performance and ensure compliance with CMS quality standards.

Our staff perform ongoing compliance monitoring during the accreditation cycle, which could involve an unannounced on-site survey. In addition, complaints (from any beneficiary, regulatory agency, or CMS) and/or a change in critical operations or business structure, such as a change in ownership, could also prompt an unannounced on-site survey.
