The Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) would like to remind contract suppliers that Competitive Bidding Liaisons (CBLs) are available for Round 2021 of the Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Bidding Program (CBP). CBLs are an important resource to the DMEPOS CBP and are available to assist with a variety of issues, such as educating contract suppliers on specific policies, resolving an issue for a Medicare beneficiary, or participating at a workshop or meeting.
