The project, which covers five types of durable medical equipment, was the subject of a lawsuit by the Florida Association of Medical Equipment Dealers and two Florida DME companies, which sought to halt the demonstration program on the grounds that the Health Care Financing Administration's use of a National Technical Expert Panel in designing the project was a violation of the Federal Advisory Committee Act ("The Gray Sheet" March 15, p. 22)
