DMEPOS Competitive Bidding - Round 2021: Registration Reminder

Registration to request access to add the Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Bidding System, DBidS, will close on Friday, August 16, 2019, at 8:59:59 p.m. prevailing Eastern Time – no authorized officials, backup authorized officials, or end users can register to request access to add DBidS after registration closes and, therefore, will not be able to bid. Registration to request access to add Connexion, the DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program’s secure portal, always remains open. However, we recommend you request access when adding DBidS. It is also important to note that the bid window is open and will close on Wednesday, September 18, 2019.

Helpful instructions, including the CMS Enterprise Portal User Manual, Registration Reference Guide for DBidS and Connexion, Registration Troubleshooting Tips, and DBidS and Connexion User Role Table are on the Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) website.
