Homecare Advocate has been covering issues related to the controversial bidding program that will detrimentally affect seniors and destroy the homecare equipment supplier network throughout our country. Today, The Tennessean published an article highlighting concerns from the supplier community on their ability to withstand the low-ball bid pricing that occurs in this contentious program. 244 economists have weighed in on this program, predicting system-wide failure and unsustainable pricing that is manipulated by the government. End result? Bad policy for seniors and for the thousands of mom-and-pop homecare equipment supply companies throughout the country.
