I know being a provider these days is really stressful. Trying to keep up with Medicare's ever-changing policies—do those cryptic DME MAC updates even help?—as well as keeping up with everything every other business owner has to keep up with, like payroll, community involvement, taxes, etc.
This week marks seven years since I joined the staff at HME News. Seven years since I had to put on work clothes and go through two round robins of interviews, take writing and editing tests, and report an actual story (as I recall, it was about some newfangled website or some such).
They're doing construction on the floor below us at HME News World HQ. All last week, they were sandblasting the ceilings down there, and, as a coworker put it, it sounded like we were working in a car wash.
I was at Medtrade when Gerry Dickerson announced Rep. Joseph Crowley agreed to sponsor H.R. 4378, a bill to create a separate benefit for complex rehab, and I was at CELA when Don Clayback announced its introduction to the House floor.
