The first in a series of educational webcasts for the Round 1 Recompete of the Medicare Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Bidding Program is now available on the Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) website. This webcast, Welcome to the Round 1 Recompete, provides background information on the program and information about the educational resources available to assist you in participating. 

The webcast is available on demand to view at your convenience – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There is no charge to view the webcast, and a transcript is also posted on the website. To view the webcast, please go to the Round 1 Recompete homepage on the CBIC website at and select Educational Information and then choose Education Events.

We will be issuing more webcasts later in the bidder education program. The upcoming webcasts will address topics such as financial documentation requirements, general bidding requirements, how a bid is evaluated and how to submit a bid in the online bidding system, DBidS. As each webcast is posted, we will announce its availability through an email update.
