Perry Home Medical Supply closes doors

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

PRINCETON, Ill. – Perry Memorial Hospital is closing the Perry Home Medical Supply store, citing changes in Medicare reimbursement, according to news reports. “Medicare has reduced what they are willing to pay for, and, secondly, if you bill for something and they don’t think you did it right, then you have to send (the money) back to them,” said President and CEO Rex Conger. Conger said changes in regulations and billing requirements for Medicare and commercial insurance companies make it hard for small HME stores. Perry Home Medical Supply will eliminate inventory and services before its last day, June 1.
