Medicare utilizes regions called Competitive Bid Areas to ensure that patients are receiving the best suppliers for their medical equipment. Approved suppliers go through an involved process to bid on a contract with Medicare to ensure that efficient processes and low fees are created in order to protect Medicare beneficiaries.
Recently, Aeroflow Healthcare won bids for all the products we provide across the continental United States. Many patients have been working with other companies on a regular basis for their power mobility devices, CPAP or BiPAP machines and masks, and other specialty medical equipment. So, Aeroflow developed its Subcontracting Division to prevent a break in care for patients who deal with health care providers that lost their contracted bid with Medicare. We use our established relationship with Medicare to continue supplying patients with the medical equipment that improves their daily quality of life.
Our representatives work on behalf of subcontracting companies to take on these new patients. Because of our contract with Medicare in various competitive bid areas, we ensure that coverage and delivery for such items as respiratory supplies, walkers, and wheelchairs remains uninterrupted for area patients. With the assistance of patients’ previous suppliers, the change in Medicare competitive bid areas is seamless.
For items that cannot be mailed, companies subcontracted with Aeroflow will deliver the equipment. When a patient has issues with the fit of their CPAP or BiPAP masks, the respiratory therapists of local companies are able to take part in providing the services needed to resolve any issue. Aeroflow Healthcare’s subcontracting division oversees the acquisition of proper documentation and the living health records for each patient in accord with Medicare guidelines.
If your current medical equipment provider has recently lost its bid with Medicare and you are in need of supplies, do not hesitate to contact Aeroflow Healthcare to facilitate the transition. Aeroflow is authorized to handle Medicare patients’ needs across the United States and will continue to do so into the future.
