02:34 PM -- HB 17-1080



Representative Young presented House Bill 17-1080, along with a handout (Attachment A) and amendment L.001 (Attachment B). The bill clarifies and modifies the licensing requirements for durable medical equipment (DME) suppliers in several areas. First, it requires DME suppliers who currently bill or plan to bill the Colorado Medicaid program in the current calendar year to be licensed by the Secretary of State's Office (SOS), and removes language from statute requiring licensure based on a supplier's intent to competitively bid to supply certain products. Second, it requires that each location of the DME supplier be located within 100 miles of a Medicare or Medicaid beneficiary to whom the supplier provides medical equipment, and that the license applicant attest that each location meets this requirement. Third, it clarifies that certain suppliers are not required to be licensed if they only provide services related to insulin infusion pumps or mail order diabetes testing supplies.
