House Sign-On Letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)

Representatives John Larson (D-CT) and Lee Zeldin (R-NY) circulated a bipartisan letter through the House of Representatives for additional signatures to ensure people with disabilities who use Complex Rehab manual wheelchairs have the same access as those using Complex Rehab power wheelchairs. The letter was open for additional signatures until September 18, 2020. 

The letter asks CMS to "make permanent" the temporary policy change that was included in 2019 year-end legislation regarding the Medicare payment amounts for CRT manual wheelchair accessories. 

A total of 41 members of the House of Representatives signed on to the Congressional CRT letter, which will now be delivered to CMS for action. NCART will
 be following up with Congressional Committee staff and staff at CMS to continue the positive momentum toward the needed policy change.
