Make Home Medical Equipment Supplier Services a Priority During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency
Home medical equipment suppliers are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. HME suppliers are working tirelessly to supply COVID-19 patients healing at home with necessary equipment, such as home ventilators, oxygen, and CPAP/bi-level PAP, to keep them out of the hospital.
Reach out to your senators and members of Congress today. Let them know the importance of HME supplier services during this time of crisis. HME suppliers need to be considered the same priority as hospitals for personal protective equipment (PPE), stimulus dollars, loans, and regulatory leniency.
Ask Congress to support the Protecting Home Oxygen & Medical Equipment Act of 2019.
Reimbursement rates have been driven to unsustainable levels, making it difficult for suppliers to provide quality care to their patients. Hardest hit by these cuts are rural providers, threatening access to care for patients in rural America.
The Protecting Home Oxygen & Medical Equipment Act of 2019 allows for increased reimbursement rates for durable medical equipment and oxygen equipment and supplies in areas of the country where reimbursement has been slashed up to 50%.
