SUPPORT NEW RESEARCH FOR WHEELCHAIRS

 

 Complex Rehab Technology is the research that designs wheelchairs to aid the diverse disabled populatio                       
 

Issue #1- Protect CRT Manual Wheelchair Accessories- Pass H.R. 3730 & S. 486

Legislation has been introduced in the House of Representatives (bill number H.R. 3730) and in the Senate (bill number S. 486) to stop CMS' application of Medicare Competitive Bid pricing to accessories used with CRT manual wheelchairs. Passage of this bill will allow people with significant disabilities who use CRT manual wheelchairs to have the same access to critical wheelchair components (accessories) as those using CRT power wheelchairs.

Issue #2- Get a Separate Benefit Category for CRT- Pass H.R. 750 

CRT needs to be recognized separately from standard Durable Medical Equipment (DME) in order to improve and protect access for people with disabilities. Legislation has been reintroduced in the House of Representatives (bill number H.R. 750) to establish a separate benefit category for the Medicare program and provide needed policy and safeguard improvements.

The National CRT organization has setup a website to help consumers tell Congress to keep funding CRT. Please use this link to contact your Congress person and your Senator
