What legal business name (LBN) should be on my bid surety bond?
The LBN on your bid surety bond(s) must be the same as the LBN associated with the Provider Transaction Access Number (PTAN) you use to register for DBidS and Connexion. When you register to request access to the DMEPOS Bidding System, DBidS, and Connexion, the program’s secure portal, you must enter a PTAN that is active in the Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS). The LBN for this PTAN will auto-populate in the Business Organization Information section of Form A in DBidS. The LBN on Form A must match the LBN specified on the bid surety bond in order for CMS to find the bid surety bond acceptable.
