Mich5, competitve bidding means that instead of your provider selecting the best headrest, controls, etc, and simply ordering them, that multiple manufacturers/DME companies etc would be invited to bid on providing them and the lowest bidder generally gets the order. This slows the process and does not guarantee that our PALS will recieve exactly what is needed, which in the case of ALS is vitallly important.
