Bipartisan Group of 22 House Members ask CMS to Stop Prepayment Review Project that would Jeopardize Care for Medicare Beneficiaries
Date:12/16/2011

Medicare patients have to do business with reluctant providers who are hundreds of miles away.  This demonstration project will make it harder for them to receive the wheelchair they need for everyday mobility.  We will be urging our members to contact their congressmen and put a stop to this project." 

Tyler Wilson, CEO and President of the American Association for Homecare, called it "inconceivable" that CMS would spring this change on the power mobility users and providers knowing that medical equipment providers are struggling to adjust to the 13-month rental policy, which has already caused many providers to leave the business.

"CMS moved unilaterally with no notice to Congress, Medicare beneficiaries, or the power mobility community," Wilson said. "Their actions will ration medically necessary items and services to Medicare beneficiaries and will actually increase health care costs.  Studies show that beneficiaries with limited mobility who don't receive power wheelchairs require more medical treatment, additional skilled services and may even have to be admitted to expensive care facilities and nursing homes."

The American Association for Homecare represents providers of durable medical equipment and services who meet the healthcare needs of millions of Americans who require oxygen equipment and therapy, wheelchairs and mobility assistive technologies, medical supplies, inhalation drug therapy, and other medical equipment and services in their homes. Members provide homecare in all 50 states.
