Join us in Nashville!

The Bid Smart 2019 Summit will take place on June 5, 2019. Join industry insiders for an in-depth discussion about major upcoming changes to DME Competitive Bidding.

During the day-long workshop, we will discuss the big changes coming to Competitive Bidding this summer - including lead item pricing, the end of median bidding, bid surety bonds, and the use of single payment amounts (SPAs) to set rates in noncompetitive bidding areas (non-CBAs).

Spots are limited! Register to attend today.

The bid calculators are preliminary tools to help prospective bidders understand how a bid for the lead item impacts the rest of the items (non-lead items) in the product category and how those SPAs would compare to current Medicare rates. This is not a customized calculator for your business and does not include considerations of your particular business operations.

We recommend you consider your own business operations when using the calculators on this page.
