"We are heartened that CMS has realized that a meaningful policy change is necessary to ensure consumers can access repair services, said Cara Bachenheimer, senior vice president of government relations at Invacare. "While we still have issues with payment levels, changing the documentation requirements to a more pragmatic requirement will absolutely help consumer access."

AAHomecare Complex Rehab and Mobility Council members, AAHomecare staff and allied consumer groups have met with CMS repeatedly to discuss the documentation issues that are among the root causes of the problems with equipment repair. AAHomecare looks forward to working collaboratively with CMS to help patients get access to the home medical equipment, services and supplies they need to receive medical care at home.

The American Association for Homecare represents providers of home medical or durable medical equipment and services who serve the needs of millions of Americans who require prescribed oxygen therapy, wheelchairs, enteral feeding, and other medical equipment, services, and supplies at home.
