Limping along: New Medicare bidding process slashes industry prices and profit margins
Home Medical Equipment Rentals
Over the past five years, the Home Medical Equipment Rentals industry has contracted, even while a growing senior population and expanded health insurance coverage have driven increased demand for its services. Since Medicare's introduction of a competitive bidding process for home medical equipment, providers have received lower prices for their rentals, cutting into profit margins from their largest market and constraining revenue overall. This program will likely continue over the next five years, and may even be expanded to Medicaid, preventing the industry from recovering the profit margins it obtained a decade ago. However, prices are expected to reach their trough over the next five-year period, and the industry will again achieve growth through the exit of unprofitable companies, layoffs and restructuring.
