Round 1 Rebid Summary

The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 required the competition for the first phase of the Medicare Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Bidding Program (CBP) to occur in 10 areas in 2007. Round 1 of the DMEPOS CBP was implemented in 2008 for two weeks until the contracts were terminated by subsequent law. The Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 (MIPPA) temporarily delayed the original Round 1, terminated the contracts that were in effect, and made other limited changes. As required by MIPPA, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) conducted the supplier competition again in 2009, referring to it as the Round 1 Rebid.

On January 1, 2011, Round 1 Rebid contracts and prices became effective in nine competitive bidding areas (CBAs) for nine product categories. Beneficiaries with Original Medicare who obtained competitively bid items in those nine CBAs were required to obtain those items from a contract supplier unless an exception applied. The contract period for mail-order diabetic supplies ended on December 31, 2012. The contract period for other Round 1 Rebid product categories ended on December 31, 2013.
