Policymakers must fix problems with Medicare’s competitive bidding program for home oxygen therapy | TheHill

Read the full article:  Policymakers must fix problems with Medicare’s competitive bidding program for home oxygen therapy | TheHill:

"The end result is that patients are finding it more difficult to access the treatments they need.  According to Medicare’s data, the number of oxygen rental patients declined by 33 percent between 2008 and 2014, while the number of COPD diagnoses increased by 59 percent. Because the only treatment for COPD in its later stages is home oxygen therapy, the increase in diagnosis and the decrease in patients using the services suggests that patients aren’t getting access to the care necessary to remain at home."

Home Medical Device Retail (HMDR) Program - California FDB

California Home Medical Device Retail (HMDR) Program

Home Medical Device Retail Program - California Food and Drug Branch (FDB):

"The HMDR program is mandated by Assembly Bill 1496 of the 1999-2000 legislative session. This program licenses California HMDR facilities and registers Out-of-State HMDR facilities. In-State HMDR facilities supply prescription medical devices or durable medical equipment for use in the home to treat acute or chronic illnesses or injuries. Out-of-State HMDR facilities must supply prescription medical devices in order to qualify for the registration. The HMDR program also licenses exemptees that are required to be on staff in lieu of a pharmacist at facilities selling prescription medical devices as described under California and Federal medical device laws."

McMorris Rodgers, Loebsack Introduce Bipartisan Legislation to Provide Access to Durable Medical Equipment | Cathy McMorris Rodgers

Read the full press release:  McMorris Rodgers, Loebsack Introduce Bipartisan Legislation to Provide Access to Durable Medical Equipment | Cathy McMorris Rodgers:

"Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) and Congressman Dave Loebsack (IA-02) introduced the bipartisan Protecting Home Oxygen & Medical Equipment (HOME) Access Act of 2017, to preserve access to durable medical equipment (DME), especially in rural communities, by addressing severe cuts to reimbursement rates. Specifically, this legislation delays the July 2016 cuts to DME payments in rural areas, which slashed Medicare reimbursement rates by more than 50 percent on average, and shields payment rates for oxygen concentrators from an outdated regulation that was never intended to apply to rates derived from the Competitive Bidding Program (CBP)."
