State, local access to federal device contracts would cost $1.35 bil. a year -- HIMA rep.

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

STATE, LOCAL PARTICIPATION IN FEDERAL MEDICAL DEVICE CONTRACTS WOULD ADD $1.35 BIL. in annual costs to the federal government, according to results of a study released by Thomas Gunerman, president and CEO of Intersurgical, at a July 27 hearing before the House Committee on Small Business. Gunerman, who represented the Health Industry Manufacturers Association, cited a study conducted by Muse & Associates at HIMA's request which suggested that federal government cost increases experienced with the Medicaid prescription drug rebate program would be repeated for devices under Sec. 1555 of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of 1994 (FASA).
