Program Standards

NABP’s DMEPOS accreditation program supports the Association’s mission to assist its member boards of pharmacy in protecting public health. The program standards through which the accreditation process is managed are essential for meeting this mission. The standards include the validation and assessment of several key areas including:

  • Facility and key personnel licensure
  • Organizational and administrative structure
  • Fiscal and human resources management
  • Product safety
  • Information management
  • Intake and assessment/delivery and set-up
  • Beneficiary and/or caregiver services and follow-up

NABP ensures that DMEPOS suppliers meet these program standards by performing:

  • A thorough review of documentary evidence such as policies and procedures, forms, and financial information
  • Unannounced site visits to verify both submitted documentation and actual business practices as demonstrated through record and file reviews
     

CMS DMEPOS Quality Standards

In order to obtain and maintain DMEPOS Accreditation, suppliers must meet and demonstrate compliance with, not only NABP’s Program Standards, but also the CMS DMEPOS Quality Standards (PDF) governing DMEPOS Accreditation.
