Providers lobby House Speaker
JANESVILLE, Wis. – The VGM Group and Mercy Health System hosted House Speaker Paul Ryan to discuss the challenges faced by the HME industry. Multiple health providers across the state, including Mercy Assisted Care DME, Agnesian Health, Home Health United, Home Care Medical, Home Care Pharmacy, Oxygen One and Knueppel Healthcare Services, asked for Ryan’s support of a payment freeze of the current rates in regional and rural areas. “Mr. Ryan agreed that the bidding program is a real problem and wants to be helpful where he can so DME suppliers can continue to serve those who need these services,” said Tom Powers, director of government relations for VGM & Associates.
