Pt & Disability Groups Support Bill to Begin Market Pricing System for HME in Medicare

Patient and Disability Groups Support Bill to Begin Market Pricing System for Home Medical Equipment in Medicare - PR Newswire - The Sacramento Bee:

"More than 30 patient advocacy and consumer groups endorsed a bill in Congress that would replace Medicare's current "competitive bidding" program for durable medical equipment with a better market pricing system that preserves access to homecare. Millions of Americans use medically required durable medical equipment and services at home, including oxygen therapy, wheelchairs, and hospital beds.

The bill, H.R. 6490, was introduced in the House of Representatives by a bipartisan group of lawmakers in September and has gained strong bipartisan support from several dozen members of Congress. The bill would replace the current, controversial bidding program with a more sustainable system, says the American Association for Homecare."
