We all know that the Competitive Bidding Program for Home Medical Equipment is flawed and unsustainable. Congress heard your cries to repeal this disastrous program, and they asked, “But what shall we replace it with?” After careful collaboration between expert auction designers, the HME Industry, and beneficiaries, an efficient, effective auction program has been developed that will repeal Competitive Bidding and replace it with the Market Pricing Program. This program brings real, sustainable savings through market-driven competition for medical equipment while protecting beneficiaries.
Learn about the Market Pricing Program and its legislative bill, HR 6490.
We traveled to DC in our latest efforts to replace the poorly designed “competitive bidding” program with the economist-backed Market Pricing Program. This new program will save taxpayers money while protecting patient choice and access to quality medical equipment from reputable suppliers.

We’re traveling to Washington DC to speak with our elected representatives about homecare issues. Hundreds of homecare advocates from across the country will be flying in to attend a national legislative conference that focuses on ensuring that Medicare beneficiaries have access to quality home medical equipment (HME) and services.
However; we need your help! While not everyone can fly to Washington to speak out, you can make a difference from home. I urge you to contact your senators and Member of Congress and ask for a repeal of the Competitive Bidding Program and support of the Market Pricing Program.
