The year in review


Before 2007 becomes a faint memory, here are the 10 most viewed HME News stories for the year. It’s no surprise that fraud is the subject of four of the top 10 stories, national competitive bidding is the subject of three stories and industry legislation is the subject of two. Wrapping up the year is a late-breaking story about CMS’s decision to open the doors to home-based sleep tests. Do you think the same issues will lead our coverage in 2008? Time will tell…
