While many home care companies have suffered as a result of the competitive bidding process, others are expanding as a result of being awarded multiple bid contracts.
Binson’s Home Health Care Centers, based in Center Line, Michigan, said this week it will hire up to 100 new employees due in part to the multiple durable medical equipment contracts the company has been awarded.
The company also counts 60 years in business this year.
“We are very pleased to have been awarded contracts for both durable medical equipment and national mail order diabetic supplies,” said Kenneth Fasse, executive vice president and COO. “The Medicare contracts awarded to Binson’s for durable medical equipment will enable our organization to expand its presence in Michigan and Florida and, in the case of the national mail order contract for diabetic supplies, Binson’s will be one of 15 suppliers in the country serving millions of Medicare beneficiaries who test their blood sugar levels at home as part of their care plan.”
The 100 new employees will be based in the metro Detroit area, the company said, with positions ranging from customer service to warehousing.
As of July 1, all Medicare diabetes patients who order supplies through the mail will be required to order through a Medicare contracted supplier.
