The Ohio Association of Medical Equipment Services is hosting two public forums on April 15 and 16 to provide attendees with a “reality check” on NCB.
Timed with the Congressional recess, the events are inviting congressional staff, patients, HME industry members, caregivers and other healthcare professionals to meet and discuss the impact of competitive bidding on the entire continuum of care for patients.
“This race-to-the bottom policy is a radical departure from today’s model of delivering homecare services and as proven by its short but unsuccessful launch, will drastically impact the continuum of care relationships, quality of products, seniors’ choices, DME businesses and local jobs,” read a public statement from OAMES.
The April 15 event will be held from 9:30 a.m. to noon at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati. The April 16 event will be held from 9:30 a.m. to noon at Cleveland Clinic Homecare Services in Cleveland.
