Homecare Associations Nationwide Urge Policymakers to Rescind Controversial Medicare 'Competitive' Bidding Rule
Date:4/13/2009

that, the American Association for Homecare has presented to Congress a far more aggressive and comprehensive 13-point anti-fraud plan, which lays out tough, effective measures to stop waste, fraud, and abuse in Medicare's DME sector.

In summary, we believe that CMS should immediately withdraw the interim final rule for competitive bidding and identify the problem areas that led to the delay of Round One of the program. CMS should issue a proposed rule that solicits public comments on the implementation of MIPPA and other modifications and improvements to the program. Specifically, CMS should convene the Program Advisory and Oversight Committee immediately.

We support efforts to make healthcare more affordable and accessible. To that end, we urge you to review and rescind the flawed "competitive" bidding regulations because of the far-reaching negative impact it will have on patients and businesses nationwide. If you have more questions regarding our views on this issue, please contact me at (703) 836-6263.

Sincerely,

Tyler J. Wilson
