HME champion tapped to lead Congressional subcommittee
WASHINGTON – Rep. Pat Tiberi, R-Ohio, has been named Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health of the House Ways & Means Committee. “Having (Tiberi) in a leadership role on Capitol Hill will greatly help the prospects for policies that improve patient care, while also creating a fair regulatory climate for HME providers nationwide,” said Tom Ryan, president and CEO of AAHomecare, in a release. Rep. Tiberi introduced H.R. 284, a bill to reform the competitive bidding program, which was signed into law in April.
