Featuring: ACMESA “A-Team”
Cara Bachenheimer, JD (Brown & Fortunato)

Mark Higley (VGM)
ACMESA brings this Trio together to present a comprehensive program designed to offer HME providers an extensive interpretation of the major changes forthcoming in this new bid program.
While the industry is generally pleased with the auction improvements and other positive modifications,Round 2021 is not without certain perils…especially with regard to the new “lead item pricing” concept. Our A-Team will present a complete and interactive “step by step” presentation intended to prepare HME providers with all the necessary information and tools applicable to this new program...with a potential “bid opening” as early as June!
The packed “menu” includes:
Bid bonds - How to access them
New bid ceiling & clearing price, and why it matters
New product categories Capacity (your offer in quantity) and why it REALLY matters
Is my bid “Bona Fide”?!
Preparing your financials and (new) electronic submission process
Financial review (e.g. ratio analysis)
Lead item pricing - the new method offers potential risk to your accessory and resupply items
DEMO of a “lead item pricing bid calculator” (take home with you via link) to mitigate the peril noted above
How non CBA area HME providers will be affected by the outcomes of the program
What happens between now and January 1, 2021; non-assignment and future grandfathering issues
Sufficient time for “what if” scenarios and Q & A
