Medicare DMEPOS Market Pricing Program Act of 2012


H.R. 6490 establishes an independent auction program, known as the Market Pricing Program (MPP), for durable medical equipment (DME), prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies.


Referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce, and in addition to the Committee on Ways and Means, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned.

Our Position: Support

MPP will result in accountability, transparency, and market-based pricing. It will ensure that Medicare beneficiaries, including individuals with disabilities, continue to have access to high quality, medically required durable medical equipment (DME) and services that will give our community the ability to live active, productive independent lives with improved health outcomes.
