227 Members of Congress Request the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to Delay Flawed Medical Equipment Procurement Program

227 Members of Congress Request the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to Delay Flawed Medical Equipment Procurement Program
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representatives Glenn `GT’ Thompson (R-PA) and Bruce Braley (D-IA), joined by fellow Members of Congress and healthcare advocates, today held a press conference calling upon the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to delay Round 2 of the controversial Competitive Bidding Program for Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Medical Supplies (DMEPOS).  Members and attendees highlighted the significance of a letter signed by a bipartisan majority of 227 members in the U.S. House of Representatives sent on June 12, 2013 to CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner, which outlines critical flaws in the program and requests delaying further implementation through the remainder of 2013.    

U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (R-PA):  “We have been joined by a bipartisan majority of the House, 227 members in total, 82 Democrats and 145 Republicans, requesting that Administrator Tavenner use her authority to delay further implementation of the program and take a hard look at many of the discrepancies that have been brought to our attention. We are concerned that mishandling of the bidding process, as outlined in the letter, will impact Medicare’s ability to serve its beneficiaries and the taxpayers. We urge the Administrator to do the right thing and delay the program through the end of 2013 in order to allow for adequate investigation and correction of the significant problems that we have identified.”
