DME Industry Disaster Cost Survey Open - Responses Due Sept. 23
The DME Community Emergency Community Response Group comprised of representatives from VGM and AAHomecare is seeking assistance in compiling data that can be sent to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in an effort to showcase the expenses incurred before, during, and after a natural disaster. Their end goal is to better assess the true costs DME suppliers incur in responding to natural disasters and to develop recommendations for CMS on reimbursement opportunities to account for these expenses.
We need to hear from you! Your participation in the survey is important as we need a robust response from the DME community to gather intel to make improvements to reimbursement during disasters. Deadline to take the survey is September 23, 2022.
