Membership Advantages

AAHomecare members and leaders represent hundreds of HME providers, equipment manufacturers and service organizations who are working together to ensure the HME industry is well-positioned to succeed within the new value-based care economy that hospitals, physicians, facilities, and post-acute care providers are being forced to operate. Given the HME providers' unique position in the communities they serve, HME providers now play an even more critical role in helping their referral partners reduce care costs, improve patient outcomes, and facilitate a better patient experience after their patients leave the four walls of their care. The time is now for HME providers to engage payers, healthcare providers, and legislators to demonstrate the value they deliver!

Value Advancement Programs

Through our HME Heroes program, AAHomecare and its members are capturing and evangelizing success stories of individual providers and health networks that have utilized HME services and products to reduce the cost of care and improve patients' lives. Tap into these stories to get ideas about how your organization can better communicate the powerful difference the HME community makes today!

Federal and state Legislative Activism

Leverage long-standing relationships with federal policy makers and influencers to direct national policies and guidelines that ensure the HME industry and its true value are represented properly as regulatory and legislative changes are considered. See some of our latest achievements on behalf of the HME community here.

Payment Reform Advocacy

Learn from AAHomecare leaders and members about federal, state, and local reimbursement initiatives that have emerged as the healthcare sector transitions to value-based care reimbursement models. From Competitive Bidding and the CURES Act to single-source contracts with state Medicaid and commercial payer organizations, AAHomecare continues to add resources dedicated to ensuring the HME community's interests are known and protected. Members of AAHomecare have access to information and the ability to be involved in the direction of policy discussions and strategy in many ways.
