Protect Complex Rehab Technology - Contact Congress Today!

Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) includes individually configured wheelchairs, seating systems, and other adaptive equipment prescribed to meet the specific needs of people with disabilities such as ALS, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injury. This specialized equipment addresses their medical needs, reduces their health care costs, and maximizes their function and independence. We need Congress to protect access by passing important legislation this year. 

Protect Complex Rehab Wheelchairs - Bills H.R. 2293 (introduced by Representatives John Larson and Lee Zeldin) and S. 1223 (introduced by Senators Bob Casey and Rob Portman) will halt inappropriate Medicare payment cuts for critical components of Complex Rehab Manual Wheelchairs and permanently exclude them from the Competitive Bidding Program.

Create Separate Benefit Category - Bill H.R. 2408 (introduced by Representatives Jim Sensenbrenner and Brian Higgins) will establish a separate benefit category for CRT within Medicare to allow better access and safeguards through proper segregation and needed improvements in coverage, coding, and supplier standards.
