The AASM continues to accept applications for AASM Accreditation of Non-Medicare Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Suppliers. In December 2010, Somnicare in Overland Park, Kan., became the first supplier to earn AASM accreditation as a non-Medicare DME supplier. In 2011, this distinction also has been earned by the Minnesota Lung Center clinics and by Georgetown Durable Medical Equipment, LP in Georgetown, Texas.
Facilities interested in earning AASM DME supplier accreditation can visit the AASM website to view and download the standards and application for this new program. By earning AASM DME supplier accreditation, facilities will have the opportunity to:
- Obtain integrated sleep medicine accreditation for your DME and sleep facility
- Gain recognition as a DME provider that meets the highest standards of quality
- Enhance your eligibility for non-Medicare insurance reimbursement
