Package moves forward without reimbursement relief 

Package moves forward without reimbursement relief 

WASHINGTON – A narrow health care package announced over the weekend does not include provisions to extend the 75-25 blended Medicare reimbursement rate for DME in non-rural areas through 2024, AAHomecare has announced. 

The package is part of appropriations language set for consideration on March 8, the association says. 

“While this latest development is certainly disappointing, our lobbying team remains fully engaged in working with our champions to identify other options to advance 75/25 provisions in other legislative vehicles, including another government funding package that must pass before March 22,” the association stated. 

AAHomecare asks that stakeholders continue to ask legislators to extend the 75-25 rates. The association has provided updated messaging and guidance for making the industry’s case for relief here
