North Carolina’s leader in home medical equipment advocacy and education, NCAMES, has launched the informational clearinghouse SaveJobsNC.com to educate state and local leaders as well as Medicare beneficiaries about the effects of pending job losses due to federal health care regulations. Industry experts are projecting 600 positions will be cut in the greater Charlotte area due to new Medicare bidding rules implemented by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in Washington, D.C.
Between 1,200-1,600 job cuts are expected statewide as HME providers across North Carolina are either blocked from servicing patients who use Medicare to pay for their essential equipment, or are forced by CMS to provide services at sub-industry prices. The first round of bidding for CMS approvals in Charlotte was just completed two weeks ago, with hundreds of HME providers left out in the cold, while others winning contracts are scrambling to provide services in the face of massive revenue cuts.
