AAHomecare has taken the major problem our industry faces and has structured a very fine new program to replace the current competitive bidding program. AAHomecare has proposed a “MARKET-BASED MODEL” that makes a great deal of sense. This is the replacement plan that must be passed by Congress.
Every HME provider must support them 100%! What they are proposing will accomplish fair reimbursements and maintain competition with access and quality for the recipients. You must stop by their booth at Medtrade and attend their “Stand Up for Homecare” reception to show your support. If you are not currently a member of AAHomecare, please join.
Just a few items we have culled from this proposed legislation. The size of the market areas would be reduced. Clear quality standards and services will be maintained. Provider qualifications will be required! Beneficiaries will have the right to purchase the equipment they want and file a claim for the allowable. There is so much more in their proposal.
Speak with the AAHomecare staff at Medtrade. This is the best opportunity to make it known you are supporting them. You have to recognize how much AAHomecare does for all HME providers, not just for their members. That being the case, please become a member at Medtrade. That is just one of the many things that you can do at Medtrade. October 24-27 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
