Even though Congress passed legislation to protect homecare patient in rural America, CMS issued a new policy before the new Administration took office that will negatively impact Medicare oxygen patients’ access to care in these areas. We understand regulations are front and center of discussion in Washington with the new administration, and want to make it clear that the home medical equipment community is being overburdened with regulations and if agencies do not make changes to these policies now it will be to the detriment of the patients and families who currently receive the Medicare benefit.
