HME News outlined the importance of attending the AAHomecare Washington Legislative Conference:
In a make or break effort to bring home medical equipment providers to the Hill next week to stump for an alternative to competitive bidding, AAHomecare is making its Washington Legislative Conference virtually free.
"It's time to be all in," said Joel Marx, chairman of AAHomecare and president of Cleveland-based Medical Service Co. "If we don't get it done now, we're not going to get it done."
HME Business also quoted AAHomecare chairman: “We’re at a critical juncture when it comes to Congress giving full consideration to the Market Pricing Program as a credible alternative to the current bidding program,” said AAHomecare Chairman Joel Marx, who is also Chairman of Cleveland-based Medical Service Company. “The homecare community needs to have a strong turnout on Capitol Hill in mid-February. If HME companies fail to make the case, we’re going to have a difficult time stopping the bidding program from moving forward with full force into Round Two.”
