The Alabama Durable Medical Equipment Association (ADMEA) was founded in the mid-seventies when a group of home medical equipment suppliers combined their efforts to solve serious problems in dealing with the Medicare program. A series of meetings held in 1975 to discuss the common problems of getting claims processed properly made it obvious that sending a few representatives to discuss issues with policy makers was more efficient and less expensive. ADMEA is currently a professionally managed association, offering a wide variety of services and opportunities to its members.
