The NSCAC shall be a communications vehicle between the home medical equipment (HME) industry and the National Provider Enrollment (NPE) Contractors. The NPE is a contracted CMS function with responsibility for managing the assignment and maintenance of Medicare Supplier Numbers to the home medical equipment industry. There are two (2) contractors – NPE East is Novitas and NPE West is Palmetto GBA. The Committee will accomplish this by establishing and maintaining strong relationships with the NPE staff; meeting with the NPE contractors on a periodic basis; providing the communication tools to facilitate thorough and prompt transfer of information to, and from, the NSCAC Membership, their state associations and Jurisdiction Councils/Advisory Committees and coordinating the issues within the industry to adequately reflect the concerns of the majority.
