Still Betting on Sleep Therapy
"If it drops masks much, we may quit doing Medicare CPAP."
"If recent proposals by [Senate] Finance Committee go through looking to have all regions affected by Round 1 rebid, it would be traumatic. If not, then it will have few short-term implications."
"If we change products dispensed, positively; if we don't, negatively"
"It's going to impact everyone's business in a very negative way. Everyone will bid low out of panic and then struggle to make it work."
"It will significantly impact our Medicare SDB business, but because our Medicare share is low, it shouldn't be devastating."
"Not for Round 1, but Round 2 will put us out of business"
"Our mix is well distributed. Medicare is going to have an impact if we lose the bid, but won't close us."
"Very unclear. If there are large number of idiots bidding or companies who have never serviced the PAP market before, we will not win it."
"We have a location in Kansas City, therefore, we will bid in Round 1. Luckily, our Medicare at this location is only 9%. If we win the bid, we will have access to many more patients."
"We may need to change to nontraditional manufacturers that supply low-cost CPAP with download capability since competitive bidding will drive reimbursement lower, eliminating competition."
"We will likely lose our Medicare SBD revenue. Round 1 will turn this into an Internet-type business. Winners will provide no service, compliance will drop drastically."
"We will lose revenue if we win, we will lose business if we do not win. Either way we lose and ultimately the patient will suffer."
