On July 1, 2013, Medicare will be implementing a program that will eliminate the right for Medicare patients to use the home medical equipment company of their choice. This program, called ‘Competitive Bidding’ by Medicare, has been criticized by hundreds of auction experts and economists as a flawed system that sets unrealistically low reimbursement and will destroy patient access for much needed medical equipment. Medicare, however, is moving forward with the program despite one noted economist calling the program the most poorly run auction in his 20+ years in the industry. If this program moves forward, Lehan’s will no longer be able to provide much needed home medical equipment to Medicare beneficiaries.
Please join us in making our legislators in Washington aware of this program that will devastate patient access to medical equipment such as oxygen, wheelchairs, hospital beds, walkers , etc. and will result in longer hospital stays and poor health for Medicare beneficiaries. You can go to the link below to send a letter to your Congressman and Senators urging them to make needed changes to the program in order to keep patient choice in medical equipment suppliers and prevent this disaster from moving forward.
Thank you in advance for your help!
