HME providers make their case before SBA

Friday, March 18, 2016

CHEYENNE, Wy. – HME providers from across Wyoming and parts of Colorado shared their stories of how Medicare policies have affected them and the beneficiaries they serve during the Small Business Administration’s Regulatory Fairness Meeting here last week. The SBA’s National Ombudsman, Earl Gay, is hosting such meetings throughout the U.S. The VGM Group invited local providers to the meeting to share their concerns about reimbursement cuts and extensive auditing. Staff members from the offices of Sen. Michael Enzi, John Barrasso and Cynthia Lummis also attended. The next meetings will take place March 23 in Bismarck, N.D., and March 24 in Sioux Falls, S.D.
