Heartland Conference invites all providers

Thursday, May 16, 2019

WATERLOO, Iowa – VGM has opened up its annual Heartland Conference to all HME providers for the first time. The move was driven by CMS’s plans to consolidate all competitive bidding areas for Round 2021, the company says. “Due to the changes in competitive bidding, VGM will carry the torch to support all HME providers whether they’re part of our membership community or not, because it’s best for patients, providers and the industry as a whole,” said Clint Geffert, president of VGM & Associates. Non-members will be required to attend a pre-conference session, “Interpreting & Preparing for Competitive Bidding 2021,” lead by Mark Higley, VGM’s vice president of regulatory affairs, on June 10. The conference will take place June 10-12 in Waterloo, Iowa, featuring more than 80 sessions. Registration for non-members is $599 and includes education, meals, networking events and local transportation. FMI or to register: www.vgmheartland.com/cbedu.
