WASHINGTON – AAHomecare has delivered a letter signed by five industry associations to Sens. Max Baucus, D-Mont., and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, urging them to support a market-based pricing system for HME.
In the Oct. 14 letter, AAHomecare outlined industry concerns about the current competitive bidding program.
The letter states: “The competitive bidding program is a deeply flawed pricing mechanism that has and will continue to create significant obstacles to quality patient care and needed services while threatening the homecare infrastructure for our nation’s seniors and persons with disabilities.”
