The industry for durable medical equipment (DME) — also referred to as home medical equipment — is governed by strict federal and state laws. To protect the public and institutions, these laws require industry-level licenses in addition to local and tax registrations. A company providing durable medical equipment without proper licensure may be subject to fines, business closure, or criminal penalties.
