Breaking News: Competitive Bidding Bills Reintroduced in the House and Senate
Hill sources have let AAHomecare know that legislation to reform the Medicare competitive bidding program has been jointly reintroduced in the House and Senate.
AAHomecare applauds Representatives Tiberi (R-Ohio) and Larson (D-Conn.) and Senators Portman (R-Ohio) and Cardin (D-Md.) for their determination to put the patient first by bringing common sense and prudence to this defective program.
These bipartisan, budget-neutral, and common-sense pieces of legislation will require bidders to stand by their bids and deter efforts to unfairly game Medicare contract auctions for home medical equipment. Download the FAQs on binding bids to learn more.
Stay tuned for the official bill numbers and text. When they are released, AAHomecare will provide a link to a new Action Center message you can use to contact your elected officials and urge them to support the bill.
