I was up the other night thinking how my country could condone
something so damaging to our health care and to the citizens
of the United States of America as the competitive bid. I am
in awe that my government would try to save money at the
expense of our elderly and handicapped. The competitive bid
does not have the best interest at hand for their beneficiaries
and the employees of the durable medical equipment industry.
It will certainly have a negative impact for all. Yes, there are
dishonest people out there but to put all the dme’s in one basket
and say we are taking advantage of the medicare program is
a crock. The reality is my government wants to down size the
dme industry to only have a hand full of dme companies. What
happened to free enterprise.
If my government wants to treat their citizens poorly, I want
my money back. I have been paying into social security and
medicare for years. This is our money, not the governments
and the people should definitely have a say on where and
how that money should be spent.
