WASHINGTON - Parachute Health is AAHomecare's newest Diamond-level corporate partner. "We're gratified to see another highly regarded company step up their support for high-impact DME public policy efforts at a critical time for this industry," said Tom Ryan, president and CEO of the association. "Forward-thinking DME stakeholders like Parachute Health see the opportunity to improve the reimbursement and regulatory environment for our industry and are demonstrating their commitment to making that a reality." AAHomecare created the Diamond-level corporate partner level last year. It represents a 25% increase in dues for the association's public policy initiatives over the previous top level. In addition to increasing its financial support of AAHomecare, Parachute Health plans to work closely with the association's Payer Relations Council to further demonstrate the value of DME to payers. The inaugural Diamond class comprises AdaptHealth, Apria, Byram Healthcare, Cardinal Health, Lincare, McKesson, Medline, Medtrade, Philips, ResMed and Rotech.
