Durable medical equipment (DME) has become a growing area of interest for M&A and other investment activity as the industry experiences increasing levels of demand, product innovation and reimbursement stability for most products in a fragmented competitive landscape. The sector has increasingly attracted investors as historical concerns regarding billing (i.e., fraud, waste and abuse) and reimbursement rate pressures (e.g., CMS’s DME Competitive Bidding Program) have subsided.
