Establishes an independent auction program, known as the Market Pricing Program (MPP), for durable medical equipment (DME), prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS).
Referred to the Subcommittee on Health.
Our Position: Support
Consumers, physicians and clinicians all agree that the current bidding program is disrupting the continuum of care by restricting consumers from going to their providers of choice in order to receive the appropriate items and services that they need. Enacting a market-based auction program will ensure that beneficiaries receive high-quality service and equipment that they have become accustomed to receiving and will lower health care costs by enabling beneficiaries to stay in their homes with the products and services on which they depend.
