We're digging our graves even deeper

Sunday, May 31, 2009

I think the creation of CSI: HME (See page 4) is one of the most irresponsible things members of our industry could do. Our representation is already fragmented from the introduction of NAIMES and AMEPA.

We need one, consolidated loud voice in Washington, not three or four little peeps. AAHomecare has been, and should be, our main Washington voice especially in light of their recent agreement with Nielsen/Medtrade.

I’m afraid that our elected officials will begin hearing three or four versions of ways to protect our valuable industry and these voices will fall on deaf ears.

It appears to me that we are giving Washington the shovels to dig our graves just a little deeper. No whining when our government and CMS regulates your company out of business!
