On The Frontlines – How Have Home Medical Equipment Suppliers Helped You?

Home Blog On The Frontlines – How Have Home Medical Equipment Suppliers Helped You?

Home medical equipment suppliers have been on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic from the beginning, ensuring patients continue to receive the products and services you need at home. Whether it’s something as simple as a walking aid to gain stability or something more complex, like a custom wheelchair or a non-invasive ventilator to assist with breathing, suppliers have been working hard to ensure that you receive the equipment you rely on. They are delivering to homes that could possibly be infected with this virus. They are arming themselves as best as they can, but many are in short supply of personal protective equipment (PPE).

For years, the home medical equipment industry has suffered at the hands of Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) via continuous reimbursement cuts to the home medical products and services. We must ensure that the suppliers of these goods and services continue to stay in business. They are especially critical during these dark times. Click here to view the map of closures of HME businesses over the past 10 years. Most of the closures occurred because they could not keep up with the overregulation and under-payment of CMS. 

One way to overcome this is to hear about the importance of these quality services and products from YOU. Hearing from patients directly about the great services received from suppliers during this pandemic can show CMS that home medical equipment providers are a necessity and that they must be able to stay in business to continue supplying these essential services to you.

We encourage you to add a comment below about the great services you have received from your supplier, and for them to continue providing high quality services and products, they must remain in business.
