• A Witness to the Impact of Competitive Bidding

    CRE received a call on our DME Competitive Bidding Hotline from “a witness to watching” what her mother had to got through to get a piece of equipment for a sleep apnea machine.  The call came from Charlotte, NC, a Round 1 competitive bidding area.  The caller, a nurse, explained that “you can’t Wal-Mart health care” and asked “what’s the next thing, Euthanasia, that’s what it looks like it is coming to.”

    The complete transcript of the call may be found on our Discussion Forum.

    Below is a link to the audio recording of the call.
