From CRE’s DME Hotline: 1-800-613-7678 (Cincinnati, OH)

I’m calling in response to the competitive bidding law that was passed by Congress.  My mother is 96 years old and she has to have oxygen, at least in the evening, at night. And I think as a result of this new law, the company that she deals with is not going to be able to continue to service her perhaps.  She will lose the fact that she has 24 hour on call service.  The folks are professional respiratory therapists.  They check on her equipment to make sure it’s working properly and I just don’t believe that we are going to have that kind of service.  I just wanted to let you know that I do not approve of this new law for my mother who is 96 or myself who is 72 and will probably need these kinds of services in the future.  “
