Wichita Eagle Reports Negative Impact of Bid Program
Today, the Wichita Eagle published a comprehensive article documenting the problems and concerns about the Medicare bidding program for home medical equipment and services. The story states, “Local owners and managers of durable medical equipment companies said the competitive bidding program will mean less choice for Medicare patients and far less revenue for DME companies. Many of the state, regional and national associations say the program will mean the loss of hundreds of jobs.” Several Kansas HME providers were interviewed and are quoted. See the full story here.
