DME SUBCOMMITTEE - UPCOMING ELECTION FOR MEDICAL EQUIPMENT REPRESENTATIVE SEAT
NC DME PERMIT HOLDERS: During the 2019 renewal period, the NC Board of Pharmacy DME Subcommittee will hold an election for the Medical Equipment representative seat. This seat is presently held by Doug Tonucci, who plans to seek a second term on the committee. The Board is requesting nominations for this position between now and October 15, 2018.
The Medical Equipment representative must practice in the particular area for which he or she is nominated, but need not practice exclusively in that area. If interested in becoming a candidate for this position, a person-in-charge (“PIC”) of a DME facility (who is the permit holder for purposes of North Carolina law) who also meets the practice area qualification stated above may submit a petition to appear on the ballot. Any petitioner must be an active, registered NC DME permit holder. The petition must be filed in the Board office or postmarked by October 15, 2018. Anyone wishing to learn more about the duties of a DME subcommittee member may contact Cindy Parham, NCBOP Investigations and Inspections Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All North Carolina DME permit holders residing in the state are eligible to vote. Voting will be electronic again this year; a DME PIC will log in to his/her individual Board account to cast an electronic ballot. More details will follow in the coming weeks and will be posted here.
