KEY ISSUES

Welcome to the GAP, the HME industry’s grassroots advocacy initiative! Below are the key HME priorities that GAP volunteers are working on. Thanks for getting involved and helping make a difference for the HME community and those we serve!

DME Relief

Pricing derived from the flawed Competitive Bidding Program is used to set DME rates and fails to account for the true costs of providing DME, supplies, and services. Supply chain disruptions and pandemic challenges affecting staffing, surcharges, added expenses, and more have exacerbated the reimbursement strain suppliers experience. The HME Industry will be seeking legislation in the 117th Congress for relief for former bid as well as non-bid areas.
