SBA, CMS to attend Heartland session

Friday, May 26, 2017

WATERLOO, Iowa – Representatives from CMS and the Small Business Administration will participate in panel discussion at the VGM Heartland Conference in June. The discussion will focus on the future of the competitive bidding program, and provide an opportunity for audience members to ask questions and share feedback on the impacts to their businesses, according to a press release. “Providing platforms to share (provider) concerns and connecting VGM members with resources to navigate the regulatory environment helps strengthen and protect their businesses,” said John Gallagher, vice president of government relations for VGM. The SBA holds regular hearings across the country and HME providers have been making their case at every opportunity, including one held in Portland, Maine, in May 2016. The VGM Heartland Conference takes place June 12-15.
