We are often called out on the weekend, in the evening, for repairs, for deliveries….the new cuts will mean a drastic cut in service and availability to our seniors and disabled population." She continued, "I am ashamed that our country would target the very people we should be protecting…..I am not just talking about me and my business, but my parents, my disabled sister, and my patients."

Economists, bidding experts, consumer groups, members of Congress, and the National Federation of Independent Business have all said the bidding program is defective. And after a request from AAHomecare, it will be investigated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Officer of Inspector General.

As a sustainable alternative, Wilson said the DME industry supports the Market Pricing Program, a plan that was recently introduced in Congress. It is a procurement system that is based on three core principles: market-based prices, binding bids, and transparency.   

"The current procurement system is destroying the Medicare program and its network of compassionate providers, while endangering patients," Wilson said. "Medicare can no longer be depended on to provide a health safety net for our seniors and people living with disabilities. Congress has to take action."
