New Jersey Home Medical Providers Call on Congress to Preserve Homecare as an Option for Seniors and People with Disabilities
Date:6/1/2010

lass="xn-person">John Gerity, CEO of Access 2 Care in Lincoln Park, N.J.  "We estimate laying off one-third to one-half of our work force if the bidding program becomes a reality.  Medicare beneficiaries will have less access to quality durable medical equipment companies, many of whom will be closing their doors."

JAMES supports H.R. 3790, a bipartisan bill in Congress that would preserve access to homecare and provide a cost-effective alternative to a misguided Medicare "competitive" bidding program for durable medical equipment. H.R. 3790 replaces the Medicare bidding program with other types of cost-savings that will reduce reimbursements to home medical equipment providers but preserve patient access to medically required equipment and services in the home.

So far, the bill has 242 cosponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives with broad bipartisan support. More than half of both the Democratic and Republican delegations in the House support the bill.

More than half of the New Jersey delegation in the U.S. House of Representatives have cosponsored the bill: Representatives Robert Andrews, Leonard Lance, Frank LoBiondo, Donald Payne, Steven Rothman, Albio Sires, and Christopher Smith.

Patient and consumer groups that support the elimination of Medicare's "competitive" bidding program for durable medical equipment include the ALS Association, the American Association for Respiratory Care, the American Association of People with Disabilities, International Ventilator Users Network, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, National Emphysema/COPD
