Tied up in the accreditation process for 7 months
HME Sales & Service, Inc. dba HME Medical has been tied up in the accreditation process for 7 months. We have been ready for inspection, and were just informed by the accreditation company (ACHC) that there may not be enough time for them to inspect, review, and process our accreditation in time for the deadline.
HME medical feels that it would be very unfair for us to loose our Medicare billing privileges through no fault of ours. Business is bad enough and for us to lose Medicare billing privileges would put us totally “out of business”.
The fairer thing to do, of course, would be to extend the deadline for all companies that are awaiting inspection and are in the full process of accreditation.
We sincerely appreciate our dilemma be forwarded to the proper channel
and appreciate that someone is acting on our behalf.
