Read the entire research article:  4Q18 HME Oxygen and Sleep Survey - Needham and Company

"We worked with HME News to survey 150 home medical equipment companies (HMEs) about the oxygen and sleep markets. Many respondents are reducing or delaying orders for oxygen and CPAP equipment ahead of Medicare changes in 2019 but we expect this to be temporary since patient volumes should be unaffected."

ATS Report Finds Urgent Problems with Supplemental Oxygen Services - Thoracic.org

Read the full press release:   ATS Report Finds Urgent Problems with Supplemental Oxygen Services - Thoracic.org

"In “Optimizing Home Oxygen Therapy: An Official American Thoracic Society Workshop Report,” 26 physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, patients and representatives of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), oxygen suppliers, the Food and Drug Administration and patient advocacy groups detail the shortcomings of the current system of providing supplemental oxygen to 1.5 million adults living in the United States. 
The panel was unanimous in its finding that delivery of home oxygen services has worsened since the onset of CMS’s Competitive Bidding Program nearly a decade ago. 
The workshop authors reviewed available scientific oxygen studies and results of a 2017 survey of nearly 2,000 supplemental oxygen users conducted by the ATS Nursing Assembly."

Read the full article:  What Is the Value of Your DME Business? - HomeCareMag.com


"Common threads among DME company owner valuation statements include: “All DMEs sell for two times annual revenue,” or “My DME should be worth the sum of all of the monies I invested into the company,” or “I wouldn’t consider selling my DME for less than 10 times annual profits.” Those who make these statements are in for a rude awakening when they attempt to sell their company or engage a skilled health care valuation professional."
