National Minority Quality Forum report: Effects the Competitive Bidding program has had on Diabetic patients

Please take some time to view this intriguing study focusing on the outcomes of diabetic patients due to results of the competitive bidding program. The report confirms what we’ve been telling members of Congress, the competitive bidding program is flawed and will do more harm than help.

The in-depth report illustrates an increase in hospitalizations, health care costs and even mortality. It also criticizes CMS for their failure to demonstrate the true impact of the bidding program on Medicare beneficiaries.

This is valuable information! Make sure this information gets in your legislator’s hands!
