Teal on the Hill - Protect Access to Specialized Equipment for Manual Wheelchairs

SpinaBifida

Our friends at the National Coalition for Assistive & Rehab Technology (NCART) have surveyed over 400 Medicare supplier locations to access the impact of continued Medicare payment cuts to Complex Rehab manual wheelchair accessories. They learned that there has been a significant decrease in access. View the report here.

Eighty-seven percent of the suppliers said they have already implemented significant reductions in their provision of accessories used with Complex Rehab manual wheelchairs or will be doing so in the next 90 days. We need your help to join with NCART and share this alarming data with Congress.

The survey emphasizes the need for Congress to pass H.R. 3730 and S.486 to stop CMS from continuing to inappropriately apply the Competitive Bid Program pricing to accessories for Complex Rehab manual wheelchairs. Learn more about this legislation here. Reach out to your Members of Congress with this new data, even if they have already signed on the bills. Please take a minute, and click here to send an email, Facebook post, and Twitter feed.
