Viemed Provides Update Concerning Successful Appeal of Office of Inspector General Findings

Viemed Healthcare, Inc. (the " Company " or " Viemed ") (NASDAQ:VMD and TSX:VMD.TO), a home medical equipment supplier and the nation's largest independent provider of ventilation that provides post-acute respiratory care services, is providing an update concerning the Company's appeal of claims related to findings from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General ("OIG") in a May 2021 report ("Report"). Based on an objective and independent review of patients' medical records, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' ("CMS") Qualified Independent Contractor ("QIC") responsible for evaluating the Company's Reconsideration appeals determined that approximately 77% of the claims it reviewed were medically necessary and properly payable under Medicare rules and regulations, overturning OIG's and CMS's initial recommendations and determinations.

"The success of our latest round of appeals is an extremely positive development for patients and their families who depend on payors to hold up their end of the health care delivery network," said Casey Hoyt, Viemed's CEO. "We wholeheartedly believe in protecting and advancing the rights of these patients to have access to the care prescribed by qualified licensed physicians.
