Colorado governor signs licensure bill

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

DENVER – The governor of Colorado recently signed an amended bill that requires DME providers to obtain licenses. The bill was originally passed in 2014, but it was held up when the state attorney general expressed concerns that a brick-and-mortar requirement violated the Federal Commerce Clause. “To resolve the issue, the group from the Colorado Association of Medical Equipment Services and other Colorado DME suppliers decided to remove diabetic suppliers and small pharmacies from the bill and allow licensure requirements to be 100 miles from any of the supplier’s patients,” according to a bulletin from The VGM Group.
