There is a great deal of truth in this old quote: “Action speaks louder than words.”
There are many ways you can become active to protect your company! Not every DME/HME dealer gets involved with his or her state association or AAHomecare! Why? I cannot fathom this! If every dealer would become a dues paying member of AAHomecare and their state association, how much more could these associations accomplish?

you have to protect your company and our industry, or face some very disastrous and trying times. This being the case, why are so many DME/HME dealers sitting on the sidelines rather than taking action!

It is exciting watching how AAHomecare never hesitates to fight any harmful legislation! They approve of those that are vital for the industry on a national basis. The same thing is happening in the states. I am impressed when I see the positive results AAH and the state groups accomplish.

But, and this is a big but, if they had the support of every DME/HME company as well as those of the suppliers, then we would see real action!

When I go back to my days in retail pharmacy, there were county associations, state associations, and the national association. Just about every pharmacy was active in each! In those days, there was no means of communication to match the efficiency of using the web. I do believe the old fashioned calling dealers on the phone proved very effective.

I hope that every DME/HME dealer will work with all of their friends as well as their competitors to pass the messages to one another. This is ACTION at work!!!!
