PORTLAND, Maine – Providers from around New England took to the podium at a Small Business Administration hearing here last week, giving government officials and lawmakers an eye-opening look at what it’s like to be in the HME business right now.
In mid-May, I had the pleasure of attending the Northeast Post Acute Care Symposium in Connecticut. The Symposium was this year’s combined meeting of the HOMES and NYMEP associations, joined for the first time.
When it comes to deciding whether or not to join or renew membership with an HME association, the decision maker needs to ask this question: Is this an investment for my business or an expense? At first blush, it would appear to be an expense.
