MetroStar Home Health COO Asks Congress to Cease Round 2 of The Centers for Medicare Services' Medical Equipment Bidding Process
Date:2/25/2013

where it can capriciously select any price between the lowest and highest bids. Furthermore, many have referred to this process as having "no transparency whatsoever" because the factors that the Agency uses to determine the pricing levels are secretly set by CMS and not released to bidders or the public, and their only purpose is allowing CMS to fix the reimbursement prices.

Round 1 of the process has already eliminated thousands of businesses from providing equipment and services to Medicare beneficiaries. In turn, with fewer businesses providing products and services, there was a significant drop in utilization of DME equipment by Medicare beneficiaries, and many were forced to change providers.

Patient and community activists from across the nation have come together in an effort to fight the implementation of round 2 of the competitive bid process. The economics of the program are flawed and can have devastating effects on the elderly.

"MetroStar continued to operate throughout Hurricane Sandy and the subsequent recovery weeks, we are a company in the community, for the community, we have always been there for those in need and we are appealing to congress to be there for us," concluded Newman.
