Earlier last week, Choice Medical in Abilene, TX hosted a meet and greet event for Rep. Jodey Arrington (R-TX).

Rep. Arrington serves on the House Ways and Means Committee, as well as the Rural and Underserved task force. He has had a keen ear on issues within the home medical equipment industry, particularly those in rural areas of the country like his district.
 
Discussions during the meeting included support for H.R.6641, DMEPOS Relief Act of 2022, as well as the extension of the CARES Act.
 
A big thank you to Ty Adams and the great folks at Choice Medical and TexMEP for hosting and supporting this event.
