That’s how much time suppliers in the first 10 roll-out cities have left to get their competitive-bidding proposals to CMS. Extended twice, first by a week and then for two months, the filing deadline is September 29 and is unlikely to change again. The accreditation clock is also ticking down. Previously set for Aug. 31, the accreditation deadline moved to Oct. 31. Providers must be registered for accreditation to submit proposals under the national competitive bidding program.
