NEMEP Recent Accomplishments

        • NEMEP recently met with NYS DOH (Medicaid) and we are expected to have changed their drop ship policy to require only a ups shipping / tracking number to mimic Medicare's new policy (no more wet signatures). 
        • NEMEP is also working with NYSDOH to require Licensure for DME through policy to eliminate DME providers from out of state.
        • NEMEP is working with personnel of the NYS DOH on Medicaid Managed Care to set a floor for all Medicaid Managed Care insurers so the rates are stable (not less than NYS Medicaid) and will protect patient access.
        • NEMEP is working regularly with NJ Medicaid to establish a regular meeting cadence.
        • NEMEP’s collaboration with VGM and AAHomecare with insurers should help drive better reimbursement through an awareness campaign on the value of DME.
        • NEMEP together with AAHomecare recently met with Congressman Higgins to ask to have Ventilators removed from Competitive Bidding and supported reform.
        • NEMEP recruited signatures to delay Competitive Bidding through the Public Health Emergency.
        • NEMEP hosted Weekly and Bi-weekly networking virtual Meetings – “Lunch with
        • NEMEP” to discuss PHE/COVID related issues or other membership concerns.
        • NEMEP expanded the Board with a balanced regional representation, established state chairs, and considered each product category for improved member engagement.
        • NEMEP used our “Provider Helping Provider” system to resolve equipment and PPE shortages during the pandemic and beyond.
