Meeting attendees talked about rural access issues in southeast Idaho. Simpson, who sits on the House Appropriations Committee, has not signed onto H.R. 4229, which would extend a retroactive delay of a second round of reimbursement cuts and address the oxygen “double dip,”or H.R. 3039, which would stop competitive bidding-related cuts for accessories for complex manual wheelchairs.
