From CRE’s DME Hotline: 1-800-613-7678 (Louisville, KY)
“I am a heart patient. I have CHF, heart failure. I am very careful about what I eat so that I can keep the food down in my body. I get as much low sodium, what some people say is salt-free, which is impossible, but a low sodium product, you know, to take care of. Well anyway, I don’t know how I got this CRE pamphlet and I was amazed to know about this new law they put into effect. The competitive bidding. My gosh, that will kill all the old people in the country here. Especially those on oxygen. If you don’t have 24 hour access, that would put me particularly in a real bad situation. Because, if the electricity went out, I couldn’t get the generator fixed. I understand that even the portable oxygen containers will not be as good as the ones we have now from a reputable dealer. I am just amazed. What’s going to happen to us? So, I register my complaint on this. I don’t know what I can do now because they’ve said it’s already made law isn’t it? So, put me down for none of that. I don’t appreciate it. I am 81 years old and, you know, I’ve got some life left in me and I just can’t see ,I mean, that’s like euthanasia really, it’s going to kill us. Thank you very much.
