Why Join Big Sky AMES?

Membership Benefits

There will always be challenges for the home medical equipment industry, especially in our part of rural America. Our one hope is to produce positive changes in our industry by educating our elected officials to see the world through the eyes of our industry. Big Sky AMES has been and will continue to be a national leader in this effort. Our members have been in the spotlight in the effort to show our nation, “We are the Solution,” not the problem in health care. The goal of Big Sky AMES is to protect your interests and provide you with reliable information.

 

What We Have Done so Far

Big Sky AMES has already stepped up to protect the interests of our members, and will continue to do so into the future. As an advocacy organization we have:

  • Influenced Montana Medicaid to change their policy allowing reimbursement for CPAP supplies.
  • Stopped a proposal that would have eliminated 99 percent of Idaho Medicaid providers on select DME items.
  • Led and will continue to lead the fight to abolish the competitive bidding process that will reduce DME jobs and eliminate over 80 percent of providers from the Medicare program.

Big Sky AMES not only will continue to work toward ending competitive bidding, but also rejuvenate the HME industry’s image, revamp Medicare’s medical documentation requirements and overhaul the Medicare oxygen benefit.

Some of our members are in leading roles for national efforts to reform DME such as eliminating Competitive Bidding while supporting the Market Pricing Program and reducing Audits.  As an association, we are members of AA HomeCare, the industry's National Association in Washington, DC.

Joining Big Sky AMES is an investment in the future of your business and our industry. The time is now to have your voice heard on Capitol Hill in Washington and in the state legislatures in Boise and Helena!
