WASHINGTON – The Council for Quality Respiratory Care has named Crispin Teufel as chairman of the board. Teufel, CEO of Lincare, succeeds Dan Starck. “I am honored and humbled to serve as the next chairman of the CQRC,” said Teufel. “As we navigate the unprecedented challenges imposed by COVID-19, I look forward to working collaboratively with my industry colleagues to continue delivering high-quality care to patients both during the pandemic and beyond.” The CQRC is a coalition of home oxygen therapy provider and manufacturing companies with a mission to educate members of the home respiratory care community to protect access to benefits in the Medicare program. Its current priority is working with Congress and the administration to block implementation of Round 2021 of the competitive bidding program for home respiratory supplies and services.
