AAHomecare engages medical directors on recall

WASHINGTON - AAHomecare has reached out to the DME MAC medical directors to address the challenges HME providers and patients face due to the Philips recall. 

In a letter to the four directors, the association requests that the DME MACs continue to reimburse for equipment and supplies affected by the recall for patients who continue to use them, as well as implement a temporary suspension of time-specific adherence rules to allow patients time to have devices repaired or replaced.   

“AAHomecare members and the DME community are committed to supporting the broad cohort of patients who depend on high-quality respiratory equipment and related services, and we look forward to working with you to ensure a high standard of care for these individuals under the current challenging conditions,” AAHomecare states in the letter. 

Philips on June 14 announced a voluntary recall of certain Bi-Level CPAP, CPAP and mechanical ventilator devices to address identified potential health risks related to the polyester-based polyurethane sound abatement foam component in these devices.
