More About Medicare's Bidding Program for Home Medical Equipment

As currently designed, the bidding program for home medical equipment reduces access to care, patient choice, and quality of care. The bidding program for home medical equipment and services continues to draw criticism from leading economists, disability and consumer organizations, and medical professionals around the country.

The American Association for Homecare continues to fight for a better alternative than CMS’ badly flawed competitive bidding program for HME. Working with leaders from the home medical equipment community, along with highly qualified economists and auction experts, AAHomecare has developed an alternative Market Pricing Program (MPP) approach for HME reimbursement.
