Rural Medicare provider
We are in pre-survey status.Our service area is about 11,000 square miles with a considerable portion of it rural where no other providers operate. Beneficiaries in many areas will suffer loss of all service and will suffer irreparable harm. Suppier-beneficiary relationships will suffer as well as we will be “blamed” for this lack of service. Immediate reconsideration of deadline extension needs to take place with the immediate petition for reconsideration for dealers like us mandatory.
I ask “how could CMS make such a decisiion that will hurt so many beneficiaries, hurt so many providers and their employees”
