STUART, FL--(Marketwire - March 26, 2013) - Connectyx Technologies Holdings Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: CTYX), www.connectyx.com, a Healthcare Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) company with personal healthcare product offerings, announced today that Global Medical Direct, Midwest Medical Services and Complete Medical Homecare, (GMD) have signed a management agreement with Connectyx to provide management consulting which will include compliance services, new business development and strategic planning.
Ronn Schuman, CEO of Connectyx, said, "We are pleased that the owners at GMD recognize the value and experience that our executive team and advisory board offer. This is especially important due to the recent changes implemented by the Medicare DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Program that was mandated by Congress through the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2010, (MMA)."
Schuman continued, "We believe that the recent reduction in the Medicare Part B fee schedule payment methodology for selected Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies (DMEPOS) items as a result of the Round Two competitive bid process will create unique opportunities for nimble and responsive companies like us. More importantly, with our collective experience of over 50 years in DME and mail order fulfillment, we have the expertise to assist organizations through the strategic planning process to achieve success in what some would call a 'no win' scenario."
Robert Shea, President of GMD, said, "GMD is excited to have the Connectyx team and Mr. Schuman working directly with our management and staff as we transform our traditional Medicare fee for services programs into new innovative health programs that will enable the existing seniors and the upcoming baby boomer population of ~ 72,000,000 increase their quality of life through the latest healthcare advances in home medical equipment, (HME), telemedicine and wellness programs."
Mr. Shea continued, "We are always open to new opportunities and intitiatives to enhance our product offerings to our nationwide customer base. With customers in all fifty states, we believe that the addition of Connectyx innovative programs and products, coupled with our call center and fulfillment facility in Lenexa, Kansas has strategically positioned our services to millions of individuals with quality health related products directly to their home."
