CLEVELAND, Ohio—Compass Health Brands announced the stepping up of its corporate sponsorship of the American Association for Homecare (AAHomecare) to the Diamond level. Compass Health said it has been an avid supporter of AAHomecare and its state association partners for the past seven years.

“The work being done by AAHomecare is so vital to the health of the HME (home medical equipment) industry," said Mike Scarsella, senior vice president of HME for Compass Health Brands. "The commitment and dedication of the staff and board of directors is incredible, and Compass is so pleased to be able to contribute to their efforts and success."

“It’s gratifying to have an industry leader like Compass Health endorse our public policy efforts by increasing their support for the Association,” said Tom Ryan, AAHomecare president and CEO. “The additional resources and active involvement of our Corporate Partner members allow us to expand legislative, regulatory and payer relations initiatives that benefit the entire HME community and the patients we serve.

“I hope suppliers realize that when they do business with an AAHomecare Corporate Partner like Compass Health, they’re working with a company that is providing extra fuel for efforts to strengthen sustainable reimbursement rates, reduce burdensome regulatory requirements and maintain strong patient access to HME," continued Ryan.
