This B.S. coming from Medicare is absolutely outrageous. They do not care about the patients. They do not care that they are aggressively destroying an entire industry. And it is the industry that keeps medical spending down. By keeping the patients within their own home, providing the care and equipment that they need. This keeps them out of the hospital and nursing home. Medicare is out of control and has lost all common sense. Why is medical spending increasing in every other area but the 2% that is spent for medical equipment? Because the 2% is under full attack by Medicare. They are bankrupting small business providers in every town across America. They are restricting access to medical equipment, supplies, and care that our seniors and disabled require to live. The reimbursements have become unsustainable. The audits our absolutely out of control. They are choking the life out of the providers and harming the patients. No Doubt About It!!!
