VGM’s August of Action campaign has produced quite a few highly productive meetings with members of Congress. Last Friday, Affordable Medical in Paragould, Ark. hosted Rep. Rick Crawford with over fifty people attending the meeting. With many providers, patients, nurses, hospital executives, local officials and state representatives in attendance, Rep. Crawford was able to hear just how important the DMEPOS industry is to patients from many great perspectives. Key stories told to the Congressman were patients overcoming disease and disability to lead a happy and productive lives because of DME. Also at the event was a DME provider that had gone out of business because of excessive audits. Rep. Crawford complimented the group saying that he had never been to a meeting that was so well organized and strongly attended.

Even the local press attended! The story made the front page. Click here to read the article.

Congratulations to KJ Spillman and the rest of the staff at Affordable Medical!
