"We Can Stop 'Competitive' Bidding"- Join 7/17 Webinar and 7/18 Virtual Fly-In
The following is a special message from the American Association for Homecare. OAMES urges all to participate in these events!
Rep. Glenn Thompson: We can stop "competitive" bidding!
Join his webinar on July 17 at 2:45pm ET
and Call Congress during the virtual fly-in on July 18
The fight to save homecare is far from over! With complaints from patients pouring in to providers, manufacturers, AAHomecare, People for Quality Care, state associations, and many other organizations, everyone is painfully aware of the massive—and growing—mess that CMS has created with their badly mismanaged bidding program.
Now it's time to make every man and woman in Congress just as aware.
In preparation for our virtual fly-in on July 18, when the homecare sector is going to flood congressional offices with phone calls, homecare champion Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-PA) will spend time with us explaining how we can stop "competitive" bidding in 2013.
