NAIMES launches 'Operation STOP NCB'

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

WASHINGTON – NAIMES has scheduled a virtual fly-in for Dec. 5 to build support for H.R. 6490, a bill that would replace the current competitive bidding program with a market-pricing program (MPP).

In what its calling “Operation STOP NCB,” NAIMES staff and board members will be in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 4 and 5 to visit the offices of key lawmakers. The association asks that providers follow up those visits with calls to their lawmakers on Dec. 5 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Let’s make Dec. 5 our DME Day in Washington by ringing the phones and making a difference,” NAIMES stated in a bulletin to members. “It will only take a few minutes and could push H.R. 6490 forward.”

Right now, H.R. 6490 has 31 co-sponsors.
