Covered Document Review Date FAQs

After viewing my Notice of Covered Document Review Findings and Required Action in Connexion, the Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Bidding Program's secure portal, I uploaded the missing balance sheet within the 10 business day response period. However, I realized that I initially uploaded the wrong balance sheet and immediately uploaded a corrected balance sheet within the same 10 business day response period. Which document will be reviewed?
