WASHINGTON – AAHomecare says it has seen a strong increase in the number of companies supporting the association at the corporate partner level.

American Medical Technologies joined the association in March as a platinum corporate partner, and Apria Healthcare and McKesson have both increased their support to that level, bringing the total number of platinum corporate partners to seven.

“We appreciate the investment that every one of our members is making in AAHomecare,” said Tom Ryan, president and CEO. “Hundreds of companies, large and small, are making a significant financial commitment, contributing time and expertise to serve on association councils, and lending their passionate support to advocacy efforts at the federal and state level. This support has helped us secure important wins for the industry and has positioned us to fight for more in the months ahead.”

AeroCare, AdaptHealth, National Seating & Mobility, Rotech Healthcare and Ventec Life Systems have also increased their support to the silver corporate partner level. Aeroflow, Hollister, Invacare and SuperCare Health have joined the corporate partner program at the bronze level.

Other companies that have increased their dues commitment to AAHomecare in 2020: Active Healthcare, Blanchard Valley Health System, Brevard Medical Equipment, BrittKare Home Medical, Camhi Compliance Consulting, Commonwealth Home Health Care, First Quality Products, Hub’s Home Oxygen & Medical Supplies/CressCare Medical, Leading Respiratory Services, Merits Health Products, Nestle Healthcare Nutrition, Prism Medical Products, Prochant, Soundview Medical Supply and XMED.

“I believe this support is a validation of the dollars we’ve helped put back in suppliers’ and manufacturers’ pockets over the last several years, as well as the gains we’ve made through our growing payer relations program and in delivering better regulatory policies,” Ryan said. “We’ve accomplished a lot, but we still have a long way to go. I hope other HME companies will look at our achievements, especially those we’ve helped deliver in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and help provide even more fuel for our efforts to secure better public policy for this industry.”
