HMEPA has been active for over 20 years. Activities undertaken in recent years have become increasingly important to HME providers and product manufacturers. Budgets are becoming tighter, rules are becoming more stringent, and competition is increasing. To survive and succeed in business today it is increasingly important to work together in an effort to maintain high standards when operating any business, achieving successful partnerships with customers, suppliers, prescribing healthcare professionals and funding sources.
HMEPA has two levels of membership.
