Wilson, of AAHomecare, said the DME industry is ready to support a fair procurement system based on three core principles: market-based prices, binding bids, and transparency.

"Medicare can no longer be depended on to provide the health safety net for our seniors and people living with disabilities. Congress has to take action."
