CMS to brief congressional staff on bid program

Thursday, November 14, 2013

WASHINGTON – A meeting with CMS and congressional staff on DME competitive bidding, originally cancelled due to the government shutdown, is being rescheduled in the coming weeks, industry stakeholders say. The VGM Group reports the meeting with staff of the Energy and Commerce and Ways and Means committees has been set for 11 a.m., Monday, Nov. 18. Because the briefings will not be public, VGM and AAHomecare are calling on providers to contact their members of Congress to urge them to attend.
