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

I’m a licensed social worker and I do discharge planning at a nursing home… in Piketown, Ohio. I’m concerned about the competitive bidding process, that law that’s being considered or actually passed, I’m not sure. I’m very strongly advocate of consumer choice and patient directive planning. Right now, I use 2 or 3 different DME companies to provide choices for our residence who are being discharged home. I really think that it’s infringement on the freedom of choice and that’s their liberty as US citizens to not have that choice anymore. I understand the cost saving part of it, too, but I really am opposed to this law and I just want to let my feelings be known. Okay. …  Thank you.”
