AAHomecare and NAIMES have agreed to merge. This is a giant step forward for our industry. It now must be followed by those dealers who currently are not members getting on the team.
When your realize that there are more than 15,000 active DME/HME providers or dealers in the United States, you will recognize how powerful an industry we will become.
With every DME/HME provider or dealer signing on STAT, our industry will prosper. We will now be able to get the MPP bill passed and the competitive bid legislation eliminated. Then, we can chart a more successful course.
This good news is not only important for us, but also even more valuable for all the beneficiaries of Medicare and Medicaid. They appreciate what you perform for them. They want to stay with their local DME/HME provider and not someone in another community.
So for every one of your clientele, be they seniors, bed-ridden, handicapped, family caregivers, or just an occasional customer, get them to support you.
Call every dealer you know and if they do not currently belong, please insist that they join. I want to see as close to 100% of the 15,000 DME/HME potential members become due-paying members. They will be able to stay in business and never be forced to downsize or even close.
Please ! ! !
