Boomberg Government (the government arm of Business Week’s parent company) released a 26 page study on “Competitive Bidding” for Home Medical Equipment & raises some serious questions about the program’s viability.

The government is rolling out a controversial program that restricts the autonomy of Medicare recipients to receive quality care from their chosen HME company. This program is fraught with serious and consequential problems that will wreak havoc on elderly and disabled Americans and small businesses like Lambert’s throughout our great country. The controversy over this program is growing, and on Friday, CMS announced that all 4 of Tennessee’s major cities and surrounding towns will be on the chopping block in early 2013. This will affect all of Lambert’s patients living in Knoxville, Lenoir City, Maryville/Alcoa, Oak Ridge, Powell, Clinton, Loudon, Townsend, Corryton, and 17 other cities close by.
