NAIMES Acquires Independent HME Advocacy Group to Join Against Bidding Process

Medical device advocacy group the National Association of Independent Medical Equipment Suppliers (NAIMES) today announced it has acquired the Committee to Save Independent HME suppliers and has merged it into the trade organization.

The new, larger advocacy group will continue to work toward replacing the national DME bidding process as one of its main initiatives.

“We are pleased with this merger which will combine the resources of CSIHME with NAIMES,” said to NAIMES Chairman Wayne Sale. “This effectively doubles our resources and will improve the effectiveness of NAIMES as an advocate for its members in the independent supplier community.”

NAIMES will remain a non-profit group devoted in the nation’s independent equipment suppliers with CSIHME executive committee member Todd Tyson, president of Hi-Tech Healthcare, Inc., becoming a member of the NAIMES board.

With greater leadership and resources, the association will align all parties to better accomplish their like goals.

“We view this consolidation of the only two national groups focused solely on the small independent supplier as a positive strengthening of the NAIMES goals,” said NAIMES President Wayne Stanfield.
