Each year the HME community comes together in Washington, D.C. to advocate and strengthen relationships in Congress. It is a critical gathering, made stronger by greater numbers of participants demonstrating how important our relatively small share of the Medicare budget is to the entire healthcare continuum. While we made progress in 2016 convincing more members of Congress that current Medicare rates for DME aren’t sustainable and securing a measure of relief for rural providers, it is essential that we continue pressing our issues and concerns on Capitol Hill. Even if our most likely path to a longer-term fix on rural reimbursement, meaningful improvements for the next round of competitive bidding, and excluding CRT accessories from bidding-derived pricing is likely to run through federal agencies, Congressional interest and support is essential to the process.
Registration is open now!  Make the decision now to join us for the AAHomecare Washington Legislative Conference, May 24-25, and help strengthen HME’s voice. Whether you’re an experienced, regular attendee of the Legislative Conference or this is your first time attending, your direct, in-person engagement with legislators and their staff members is the most effective means to advocate for better public policy for HME.
