People for Quality Care launches interactive map
WATERLOO, Iowa – People for Quality Care has launched an interactive map with data on Medicare patient complaints across the United States. Features of the map include the latest number of patient complaints (updated daily), the ability to filter complaints by medical equipment type and state, and an online form for visitors to add complaints. People for Quality Care has collected 3,200 patient complaints in one year through its Medicare Beneficiary Complaint Hotline. “We created this tool so Congress and the public can see the unfortunate reality—Medicare’s competitive bidding program is not working,” stated Kelly Turner, director of advocacy, in a press release.
