From CRE’s DME Hotline: 1-800-613-7678 (Boynton Beach, FL)

I have a brochure in front of me that tells me that Medicare patients will no longer be able to, will be forced to use a different home medical equipment supplier that was chosen by the US government because of a low bid. I happen to have a CPAP machine and I’m in Florida 7 months of the year and maybe 4-5 months of the year in Connecticut and I do get my CPAP from Connecticut becasue my doctors are there. I’m sorry to hear that  the small businesses are not going to be able to get in with this competitive bidding. Congress and the President always talk about small businesses and helping them out, I don’t see how this can help them out at all, nor does it help me as a person. I would like a list of people who voted for this bill, that was recently passed in Congress. I think it is terrible that we can’t use who we want to use and what happens if I’m in Connecticut and something goes wrong with my machine? I need to breathe. Thank you very much. I think that this new Congress and Senate are really against seniors it seems that they are really hitting us in our Medicare and our our Social Security and now with our needs, our physical needs. Thank you. Good-bye.”
