Providers met with staff members of Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) and Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-MT) in Missoula on Monday morning. The group discussed how vital the S. 2312 is to providers offering a little relief from the upcoming fifty percent cuts to the DME industry. Joining the meeting was Deputy Ombudsman to the Small Business Administration, Yolanda Swift. Both the staff and SBA were very supportive of the efforts that Big Sky AMES has been a part of and were very well versed in all of the industry concerns, this bodes well for the ground movement as support grows for S. 2312!
