Congresswoman Barbara Comstock visits Wheelchair and Scooter Repair in Virginia

The August Recess is in full swing and providers are making it count by meeting with elected officials. This week Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) visited Wheelchair and Scooter Repair (WSR) in Manassas Park, VA to discuss challenges that DME providers are facing. The discussion revolved around issues with the audit process and reimbursement reductions due to competitive bidding.

Wheelchair Scooter and Repair President, Stefanie Hirsch was very happy with the meeting, “Congresswoman Comstock was eager to learn about the business and listened to the challenges that providers are facing. She asked great questions throughout the meeting and left with a good understanding of the industry as a whole.”
