Medical Equipment Stores Struggling with Impending Medicare Reimbursement Rate Cuts

Medicare patients may soon be paying more out-of-pocket for medical equipment.

More cuts to Medicare’s reimbursement rate for the products are looming.

Congress passed legislation requiring competitive bidding for equipment prices to ensure patients get equipment they need at reduced costs, benefiting them and taxpayers.

But, businesses  say it’s taking a toll on them and those they serve not just here locally but everywhere.

Here is a news story from Maine showing the devastating effects in their area just like here in Wisconsin.
