Ask Your Member of Congress to Sign the OIG Letter to Study Medicare Bid Program Impact

If you haven't done so yet, please contact your member of Congress and ask them to sign on to the Dear Colleague letter requesting the OIG to conduct a review of the competitive bidding program prior to the countrywide expansion in 2016. This letter was created by Rep. Price (R-GA), Rep. Braley (D-IA), Rep. Reed (R-NY), and Rep. Duckworth (D-IL).

OAMES Board has officially voted to support the letter and so far, we have three Ohio Members on Congress signed on.  Those include Rep. Tim Ryan (D), Rep. Pat Tiberi (R) and Rep. Bill Johnson (R).
