California HMDR Laws for 2018

California HMDR Laws for 2018

New CA Home Medical Device Retailer (HMDR) Law - Effective Jan 1, 2018

Read the full Bill:   Bill Text - AB-1387 Home medical device retail facility business: licensing: inspections.:

"AB 1387, Arambula. Home medical device retail facility business: licensing: inspections.

The Sherman Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Law, among other things, prohibits a person from conducting a home medical device retail facility business in the state without a valid license from the State Department of Public Health. Existing law requires the department to inspect each place of business prior to issuing a license, and further requires the department to inspect each licensee at least annually.

This bill would modify, until January 1, 2023, the requirement for the department to inspect a licensed home medical device retail facility business if it is accredited, as specified, by an accreditation organization approved by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. If so accredited, the bill would authorize the department to conduct an inspection only upon a complaint made to the department regarding the licensee. For a licensee that is not so accredited, the bill would continue to require the department to conduct an inspection at least annually."

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."
