Aeroflow plans to add more subcontracting partners... to help ensure that all patients in all CBAs receive the care they need.
Asheville, NC (PRWEB) April 07, 2016
Aeroflow Healthcare announced this week that they have received contract offers for 645 contracts in 108 competitive bidding areas (CBA) affected by Medicare’s Round 2 Recompete. Aeroflow Healthcare, a medical equipment supplier, has established themselves as a national provider in recent years.
Starting in 2011, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) launched a program to replace previous fees for home medical services. This program, called Competitive Bidding, requires home medical equipment suppliers to submit “bids”, or their proposed service prices, for a multitude of medical services in various markets. Certain companies are chosen to provide their services in each market across the country based on their submitted bids.
Due to the nature of Competitive Bidding, there are many companies who do not win bids in certain markets, and therefore are not able to provide services to their patients in those markets. As a result of this, a subcontracting industry has developed between medical equipment providers to ensure that all patients receive their medical supplies and the care they require for their health and comfort, regardless of the results of Competitive Bidding.
Aeroflow Healthcare has a dedicated team who works solely with subcontractors. This team has grown with CMS’ Competitive Bidding and continues to ensure each of their subcontracting partners’ patients receive quality care. Aeroflow supports their partners through continued use of technology, increased marketing support, and leverage of Aeroflow’s infrastructure that allows partners to continue growing market share. “We have a positive and friendly relationship with all the employees of Aeroflow since July 1st 2013, they are more than willing to assist with patients’ needs and care,” said Denise Edman, President at Home Air of Joliet.
Aeroflow Healthcare currently supports more than 100 subcontractors in over 39 states and continues to add new relationships from the previous round of bidding. “The friendly and helpful staff at Aeroflow has made the sub-contracting experience as painless and pleasant as possible,” said Frank Lico, Customer Service Manager at Persante Continuing Care.
The results of Round 2 Recompete take effect on July 1, 2016. Aeroflow plans to add more subcontracting partners that meet the qualification requirements from Round 2 Recompete to help ensure that patients in all CBAs receive the care they need.
