Several years ago, Medicare initiated a Competitive Bidding program for the Home Medical Equipment industry which lowered reimbursement rates to unsustainable levels for full service companies like Hutchinson Medical. Most other insurance companies have since adopted similar rates and approximately 40 % of HME companies nationally have gone out of business.

Feel free to contact your legislators and Medicare 800-842-2052 to voice your displeasure particularly if you are experiencing an access issue to your medical supply needs.

Hutchinson Medical has various items remaining in inventory which, for a short period of time are available on a private pay basis – we are unable to bill to insurance companies. Although our showroom is closed, you may call 978-741-1770 and leave a message.

It has been our honor and privilege to provide service to this community over the last 100 plus years !!
