Thursday, May 11, 2017

ATLANTA – Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has signed into a law a bill that requires licensure and a physical location in the state for HME providers. “Our licensure law is pro-business and pro-patient,” said Teresa Tatum, executive director for the Georgia Association of Medical Equipment Suppliers (GAMES). The association will work with the Georgia Board of Pharmacy on the rulemaking process for implementing the bill, which was passed in April.
