On the Frontlines - Home Medical Equipment Suppliers Are Here For You!

Home Blog On the Frontlines - Home Medical Equipment Suppliers Are Here For You!

At some point in our lives, we all will need to rely on the use of home medical equipment. Whether it be something as simple as a walking aid to gain stability or something more complex, like a custom wheelchair or a non-invasive ventilator to assist with breathing. When that day comes, it will become an important part of you and your family’s life. Quality and accessibility cannot be sacrificed. 

Home medical equipment suppliers are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring patients continue to receive the products and services need at home. They are delivering to homes that could possibly be infected with this virus. They are arming themselves as best as they can, but many are in short supply of personal protective equipment (PPE).

For years, the home medical equipment industry has suffered at the hands of Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) via continuous reimbursement cuts to the home medical products and services. We must ensure that the suppliers of these goods and services continue to stay in business. They are especially critical during these dark times. Click here to view the map of closures of HME businesses over the past 10 years. Most of the closures occurred because they could not keep up with the overregulation and under-payment of CMS. 

As we all hunker down during this COVID-19 pandemic, please take a minute to reach out to your legislators and let them know the importance of home medical equipment access during this time of crisis.
