The bill amends the definition of 'durable medical equipment supplier' to include a person or entity that bills or plans to bill the state medicaid program. Further, the bill amends the exceptions to the definition of 'durable medical equipment supplier' to exclude persons or entities that only supply insulin infusion pumps or diabetes testing supplies.
The bill clarifies the requirements for a durable medical equipment supplier to do business in Colorado. For each of its physical locations providing services in Colorado, a durable medical equipment supplier must be licensed by the Colorado secretary of state and attest that each of its physical locations providing services in Colorado are within 100 miles of any Colorado-resident medicare beneficiary being served by the supplier in Colorado or any Colorado medicaid recipient who is being served by the provider in Colorado.
The bill removes language in the medicaid durable medical equipment provider statute and replaces it with a cross reference to the licensing statute for durable medical equipment providers.
