Sens. John Thune (R-S.D.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) are leading the effort to extend the Medicare 75/25 blended rate for non-rural, non-CBA suppliers through the end of 2024. These HME champions recently introduced S.1294, which continues relief granted in 2022 Omnibus budget for an additional year and provides more stability for suppliers in these areas. The bill would also impact on rates from other payers who are influenced by Medicare rates, including TRICARE and Medicaid programs in more than 20 states.
