I work for a family owned DME company that spent alot of time and money for the first round of competive bidding only to have all our efforts be thrown away. The entire competive bidding concept only causes confustion with the consumer. The consumer will not get the service they deserve. This will force many companies out of business. Medicare already has an existing fee schedule. They can set the reimbursment and the companies should be able to decide wether or not to accept the business.
