AAH launches supplies survey 

Ashley PlaucheWASHINGTON – AAHomecare is launching two nationwide surveys to gather intel on the rising costs of products, shipping and labor for those providing disposable medical supplies. 

The association will use aggregated data from the surveys in its advocacy efforts. 

“AAHomecare’s Medical Supplies Council is acutely focused on issues impacting the disposable supplies space and wants to empower the industry with data and tools that can be leveraged to educate payers on today’s market realities,” said Ashley Plauché, AAHomecare’s director of membership & public relations.  “Information from surveys like these help breathe life into our messaging on the need for sustainable reimbursement to preserve the HME infrastructure and ensure end user access.”  

The deadline for the surveys is April 14. 

AAHomecare says the surveys build on last year’s incontinence survey, which the association used as the foundation for an infographic and letter to Medicaid directors. Providers were also able to leverage the survey results in individual contract negotiations with their payers, including MCOs and commercial plans.
