HME Providers Must Be Heard

The HME Industry may be small as compared to the rest, but we play an integral role in the lives of millions of Americans. CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) audits and competitive bidding policies are challenging HME business large and small of all sizes, forcing patients to go without the products and services they need.

VGM Government Relations is here to help VGM Members navigate the complexities of the legislative process and regulatory rules with two goals in mind: you have freedom to do business and your voice is heard.     

Hot Topic: Competitive Bidding

The industry is currently into the “last half” of the Round 2021 “gap period”, which began Jan. 1, 2019, and will last through Dec. 31, 2020. CMS will not release the 2021 competitive bid rates (“Single Payment Amounts”) until late summer of next year. 

Throughout this “gap period”, VGM Government Relations will plan to provide members with further information via webinars, blog posts, and several on-site sessions. We will assemble information applicable to subcontracting in your service area for product categories in which you have interest, as well as certain options to bill Medicare for competitively bid products under your own PTAN utilizing existing Round 2021 contracts in conjunction with another supplier.
