We're MOVING FORWARD in Tennessee as an exclusively HME-focused association dedicated to advocating, educating, and protecting your company and the people you serve.


 


S T R E N G T H   I N    N U M B E R S:
We are all too familiar with the threats facing our industry, including competitive bidding, audits and reimbursement cuts. ATHOMES enables suppliers to unite to make a difference. As one founder said, "Every supplier in Tennessee needs to be active and contribute time and resources toward protecting out companies and our industry. There is strength in numbers, and now is the time to prove it!"Our industry needs accessible, effective leadership that focuses on developing the relationships and strong political connections that will be required to help shape legislative and regulatory changes, and to keep industry members informed, both as to what needs to be done, and how to do it.

ATHOMES is proud to endorse Save My Medical Supplies, a consumer-based platform designed to educate the public about how Medicare reform mistakes are impacting people with serious medical needs.  All types of medical supplies are being negatively impacted by changing Medicare policies.  The Save My Medical Supplies campaign is aimed directly at consumers to build public awareness, and a public outcry, from the millions of people who are receiving care from the HME industry.

Help us spread the word about this great grassroots tool by sharing its information on your site and corporate communications.  Log in to the Members Only Section to access Save My Medical Supplies links, logos, and information.
