136 Members of Congress Demand that Medicare Release Key Information about Controversial Bidding Program for Home Medical Equipment
Date:8/24/2010

l intent, did not address the flaws that precipitated the delay two years ago, and is now charging headlong into the program in 9 of the 10 largest metropolitan statistical areas in the U.S. An additional 91 areas will be subjected to the bidding process next year.

A bipartisan bill pending in Congress, H.R. 3790, calls for the repeal of the Medicare bidding program for home medical equipment and it would substantially reduce reimbursement rates for the equipment but preserve the nation's vital, cost-effective homecare infrastructure. That bill is supported by 255 members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
