CMS is conducting the Round 2 Recompete in the same geographic areas that were included in Round 2. However, as a result of the Office of Management and Budget’s updates to the original 91 Round 2 metropolitan statistical areas (MSA), there are now 90 MSAs for the Round 2 Recompete. Most Round 2 Recompete MSAs have one competitive bidding area (CBA.) However, the three largest MSAs (Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York) are subdivided into multiple CBAs, and CBAs in multi-state MSAs have been defined so that there are no multi-state CBAs. There are 117 CBAs in the Round 2 Recompete.
The national mail-order recompete (mail-order diabetic testing supplies) CBA includes all ZIP codes in all parts of the United States, including the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa.
