2018 GAMES Annual Meeting

GA DME License now required by The National Supplier Clearing House (NSC)
The National Supplier Clearing House (NSC) has required suppliers in the state of GA to be compliant with the Durable Medical Equipment Suppliers Facility Permit since February 2018. Failure to be in compliance can result in a revocation of your supplier number. If the license is not on file with the NSC, you will be contacted via letter requesting a current copy of your license before any further action is taken.  If you wish to submit your license because it is not on file or unsure, you can use the NSC Web Form Submission tool to submit your license to the NSC.

DME License now due to Medicaid
On May 24, 2018, Georgia Medicaid issued a statement indicating they expect all enrolled DME providers to be licensed by December 31, 2018. Once you receive your license from the Georgia Board of Pharmacy you need to forward a copy to Medicaid:

Upon approval of the licensure, currently enrolled providers will need to email their DME Supplier license or their completed DME Licensure Exemption Form to enrollment@dch.ga.gov. Please include the provider ID and name of business on the license.

Authority for DME Licensure in GA
GA Senate Bill 41 gave the Georgia Board of Pharmacy authority to license DME providers who serve patients in Georgia. This law was signed by the governor and went into effect July 1, 2017.
