What’s Not Changing for DMEPOS Suppliers?
According to the NPE West website, little will charge from the DMEPOS suppliers point of view.
- The contact information for NPE West/NPE East DMEPOS suppliers will not change from the current NSC information. Suppliers will continue to call the same customer service number (866-238-9652) and use the existing mailing addresses that exist today.
- All web tools, FAQs, articles, and other information on the current NSC website will be adjusted to reflect the new logo and information, but will operationally remain the same.
- Enrollment for DMEPOS Suppliers including the processes and procedures will continue as currently performed. No change to the enrollment process will occur due to the transition.
