Random thoughts

A new group, the Committee to Save Independent HME Suppliers (CSI:HME), released the results of a survey yesterday that ranks the top concerns of providers. Restoring payments to complex rehab came in 3rd, ahead of reforming the home oxygen therapy benefit (4th). I'd be lying if I didn't say that surprised me. (For the record: Eliminating national competitive bidding came in 1st and repealing the 36-month oxygen cap came in 2nd.)

Here's a nice story about a consumer who's making beach power wheelchairs out of used parts and renting them for $40 per day.

Here's a letter to the editor that was published in The Post-Journal in Jamestown, N.Y., that calls for requiring reflectors or some other form of lighting for wheelchairs after its writer almost hit a person in a wheelchair at night.

What's up with these Miracle on Wheels ads veiled as news stories?
