Lobbying: Peaks and Plains Medical, Aeroflow

Friday, October 20, 2017

More than 20 people representing HME companies and organizations from across the Pacific Northwest and Big Sky regions attended an event held at Peaks and Plains Medical in Spokane Valley, Wash., where the guest of honor was Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., according to VGM. McMorris Rodgers plans to introduce a bill in early November that would provide relief from the competitive bidding program in non-bid areas. She has also recently spearheaded a letter to the Office of Management and Budget, asking them to clear an interim final rule under their review that would provide relief from the bid program. McMorris Rodgers stayed at the event for nearly an hour, VGM says…Aeroflow Healthcare met with Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., to discuss topics related to health care and their impact on the state. Aeroflow’s executive team and the company’s Mom and Baby division met with Meadows to continue previous discussions about the importance of small businesses in health care and the role of breastfeeding in parenting. Meadows briefed Aeroflow on the current state of health care in Congress, including the recent healthcare-related executive order from President Donald Trump.
