3/20/2013 9:25:35 AM

MIAMI, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Equipment Solutions Corp. are pleased to announce they have been awarded a GSA Schedule 65 IIA contract (V797P-2294D) and are now certified to provide medical equipment and supplies to all agencies of the federal government and participate in their Prime Vendor Program. In addition, Medical Equipment Solutions have recently become an 8(a) certified small business. Federal agencies established Government-wide contracts to simplify the procurement process. Through the GSA Schedules Program (also referred to as Federal Supply Schedules and Multiple Award Schedules), agencies are able to purchase products and services directly from commercial suppliers. Medical Equipment Solutions have placed their medical equipment and supplies on the government's electronic ordering system, GSA Advantage!®.

"For an Economically Disadvantaged Woman Owned Small Business, (EDWOSB), this schedule opens up significantly more markets for us throughout the country, including the VA's Prime Vendor Program," states Maria Pineda, President & CEO at Medical Equipment Solutions Corp. Adding, "We're a family run business with over a decade of experience and a strong presence within the Hispanic community. We can service well beyond the federal level to numerous state and municipal governments throughout the country as they will be able to secure quality medical equipment and supplies from a vetted government contractor while being assured of receiving the same level of service and quality."

Medical Equipment Solutions have been authorized to supply the following items to governmental agencies: IV Pumps; Oxygen Concentrators; Hospital Beds and Mattresses; flotation pads/mattresses; erection pump devices; Patient Lifts; Examination Tables; bandages; wound drainage; disposable or reusable hospital clothing, incontinent products; diapers; pads; protective linens; specimen cups and containers; urinary drainage bags, kits and sets; urinary catheters; otoscopes; stethoscopes; thermometers; hand held dopplers; pulse oximeters; orthotics; splints; braces; immobilizers/soft goods; supports; and cervical collars.

Medical Equipment Solutions originated an electronic billing system to provide complete transparency when dealing with governmental agencies and within the Medicare and Medicaid systems. The automated patient-records system assures patient confidentiality and accurate billing. Accredited in Orthotics & Prosthetics by BOC, Medical Equipment Solutions is a top provider of power and manual wheelchair sales and rentals in South Florida. They also provide both new and used hospital beds to patients for home use or hospitals and clinics, and, as a Medicare provider, provide diabetic meters, testing strips, lancets, and lancing devices to Medicare patients.
