Broadway Home Medical opens cash-only store

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

WICHITA, Kan. – The owners of Broadway Home Medical, an HME provider based here, plan to open a cash-only store on the other side of town, according to the Wichita Eagle. The new 4,000-square-foot store, Lindsey Medical Supply, will carry similar supplies to Broadway Medical—walkers, wheelchairs, hospital beds and respiratory supplies, among other items—but won’t bill Medicare and other payers. “We’re looking for a whole different business model to get away from reimbursements from insurance companies because they’re getting harder to collect,” Brian Lindsey told the newspaper.
