VGM creates state licensure kit

Friday, October 24, 2014

WATERLOO, Iowa – The VGM Group has created a “tool box” on its website for those looking to push DME state licensure reform. “The political landscape is ripe for licensure and now is the time for DME to be part of the broader health care conversation with legislators,” said Tom Powers, state legislative director of VGM Government Relations. “Requiring DME licensure within states will create safeguards for the medical industry and will raise the bar for local care.” The tool box includes a list of grassroots strategies, tips on finding a legislative sponsor and follow up advice, as well guides to the legislative process.
