AAH: Keep the message alive 

AAH fly-inWASHINGTON – AAHomecare is calling for stakeholders to be a “force multiplier” to the more than 140 meetings that were held on Wednesday with lawmakers and their staff on the need to extend 75/25 blended Medicare reimbursement rates in non-rural areas. 

The meetings took place as part of a fly-in organized by AAHomecare and attended by nearly 60 industry leaders. 

“The message is simple: Ask your senators and representatives to reach out to leadership in their respective chambers in support of extending the 75/25 Medicare blended rates for DME in non-rural areas through 2024 as soon as possible,” the association stated. “You should emphasize that cuts have already taken effect and share how they are impacting your ability to support your patients.” 

The 75/25 blended rates expired on Jan. 1, 2024. 

On Wednesday, AAHomecare once again put a priority on engaging with legislators on Committees of Jurisdiction for health care finance issues, resulting in 35 meetings with members of the House Energy & Commerce and Ways & Means Committees, as well as 15 meetings with legislators on the Senate Finance Committee.
