Tuesday, February 7, 2017

LODI, Calif. – Lodi Health is closing Memorial Home Med-Equip due to changes in Medicare reimbursement, according to the Lodi News-Sentinel. The full-service store has provided area residents with medical equipment like hospital beds, walkers, canes and oxygen equipment for 33 years. Company officials cite a 50% reduction in reimbursement as the driving factor in the decision. Lodi Health is not alone. There were once three medical equipment supply stores in the city at one time, but they have all disappeared, the newspaper reports. Memorial Home Med-Equip is expected to close some time in February.
