establishing a prior authorization process for certain durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics,
and supplies (DMEPOS). In this rule, DMEPOS items that were flagged for unnecessary utilization

submit a claim.
Durable Medical Equipment Market – Driver
Increasing number of hospitals, surgical and outpatient procedures, home healthcare services is
expected to result in increasing adoption of DME during the forecast period. For instance, according to
the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the home health aides and personal care aides are expected to
increase by 13 million in 2020 (a 70% increase from 2010). In addition to this, the organization
predicted that home healthcare employment is expected to grow at a rate of 55.0% from 2006 to 2016,
thus accelerating growth of this market.
Rising number of patients that require long-term therapy, drug delivery, and related products is
expected to propel growth of the durable medical equipment market. Increasing prevalence of chronic
conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disorders, neurological disorders, and gynecological disorders
is leading to high demand for long-term care at home care settings and hospitals and this is expected to
facilitate demand for durable medical equipment. For instance, according to the CDC, 2015, around
800,000 people in the U.S. died due to stroke and other cardiovascular diseases.
Furthermore, driven by the ageing demographic, there is a huge drive to develop equipment that can
help to treat age-related conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, and other lifestyle
disorders as early as possible. Therefore rising geriatric population is important factor supporting
growth of the DME market. For instance, according to United Nations Organization, there were an
estimated 962 million people aged 60 years or over in the world in 2017, comprising 13% of the global
population and this population is continuously growing at a rate of about 3% per year. Currently,
Europe has the highest percentage of population aged 60 years or over (25%).
